    Dear Kim, Joe and family,
    I am so sorry for the loss of your dear mother, mother-n-law and grandma,
    Even though I have never met your mom Kim I know she was a wonderful person by everything that was said about her. She certainly touched so many lives and she had a lasting impression on so many.
    Her legacy will live on through all of her family and friends.
    “Perhaps they are not the stars, but rather openings in Heaven where the love of our lost ones pours through and shines down upon us to let us know they are happy. Death leaves a heartache only God can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal.”?
    You are in my thoughts and prayers
    God Bless
