    In our absence we send our love and prayers for all of you. We are so sorry we cannot be there to share the sorrow we all feel today. We pray your hearts will be comforted by those that can attend and that you will be able to share many sweet memories of your Mother. Rest in peace dear sister-in-law. We will meet again.
