I am so sorry to hear that Aunt Alice passed. At the same time, I know it was a joyous time for her to get to heaven. What a reunion that was for her and at Christmas! I know she will be greatly missed. She was one of the sweetest people I ever met. Amy, your family was always so special to me. Your mom and dad welcomed me into the family with open arms when Dave and I got married. Greg and you were absolutely the sweetest kids. (Great parenting on your mom and dad's part!)

Please know that I am praying for your entire family. I would love to be at the funeral but will not be able to make it. I will be with you in thoughts and prayers. I love you all! Sherry

Dear Amy,
I’m not sure you’ll remember me, but I worked with your mom at Tic Toc. Your mom was a wonderful woman! She was always so kind and gentle. I can hear her voice now, always soft, always patient. You and your family have my deepest sympathy.
