  1. I was deeply saddened to hear of your loss. My thoughts are with your family.
    “As you comprehend this profound loss, let yourself cry knowing each tear is a note of love rising to the heavens.”
    Quote by William Wordsworth.
    That though the radiance which was once so bright be now forever taken from my sight. Though nothing can bring back the hour of splendor in the grass, glory in the flower. We will grieve not, rather find strength in what remains behind
    Love Stacie Memories Last Forever
