My deepest condolences to you, Doug. You are an amazing person, no doubt a characteristic inherited from your parents. How indescribable to lose someone you cherish so dear. I know you are broken now, but just hold tight to those wonderful and precious memories and keep talking about her and making new memories with those left behind. She would love that! I'm here for you and will pray for each of you, asking God to grant that thing which you need most to get you through from one moment to the next. Much love, Aunt Tracy
