I have a great big lump in my throat as I write this. I hoped it would not be so soon for you and that you would have more time with your Gary and Princess. You are an incredible person and you fought with such grace and dignity. Thank you for always being willing to share your thoughts with honesty and clarity. Thank you for letting your spirit shine through. You will be missed so much. I miss you. Your faith was ever present and an inspiration to me.

Words do not do justice to the feelings in my heart. To the family, my sincere condolences. My heart hurts tonight, but I am thankful that the suffering is over. You are home with Jesus. Goodnight Queen Guinevere. We did not meet face to face in this life, but I pray I will see you in the next.
