Miss you very much mom.
My BFF. I was fortunate to have you in my life for over forty years. God needed his Angel. I miss you.
I am so sad that I didn’t get to spend more time with cousin Katie. Everyone mentions what a kind, gentle and sweet person she was. May our Heavenly Father, “the God of all comfort“, continue to provide what you need until we see our beloved Katie again. 2 Corinthians 1:3.
Auntie Katie was a delightful soul on Earth as she also is in Heaven. Lots of love to you Michelle & Marco
