    To the entire family, on behalf of My Family.
    I wish you all the best at this time. You have each other to console and renew your strength. She was always so proud of each one of you. Every moment you spent with her had more meaning than you recognized at the time. It was the why of life, every event and precious moment of it. The answer to the mystery of existence is the love you shared. Celebrate!
