  20. My deepest sympathy and condolences to all of the family at this time. May time ease the sorrow you feel and leave only loving memories. Sometimes our inner light goes out, but is blown into instant flame by an encounter with another human being. And I would like to give thanks to the person who rekindled my light. THAT PERSON WAS KNOWN TO ME AS FRAN ( BUT GRAMMA OR MOM OR SISTER OR FRIEND TO MANY OTHERS) She will be missed dearly.
    Sleep with the Angels.
