What a huge personal loss, and what a loss for your family, friends and the community. We can only thank you for who your were, and what you did for anyone you found in need. Now it is time for all of us to let you go and find your peace, just know that you will be remembered and treasured always, and like Mary Frye's poem, you will always be present as a thousand winds that blow, the diamond glints on snow, the sunlight on ripened grain, the gentle autumn rain, the swift uplifting rush of quiet birds in circled flight, and the soft stars that shine at night. In these times of strife and upheaval, your life and purpose can be an inspiration to all. My sincerest condolences to everyone whose life you touched, they will all miss you. My love and compassion to your two boys, Cy and Cyril, and you husband, Sylvester, all of whom you loved so dearly. Your friend Tina
