    Dearest Mom,
    I am so happy that you have no pain, your brace is off and you are free. I will miss baking and cooking with you, our long chats, having coffee at Dana Point and playing cards. I love you with all my heart and I am so happy that we spent so many years together and all the wonderful memories we have with Jen, Kim and Ken. I know you will watch over us from above. Love you forever, Sharon

    Dear Sharon, Ken, Jen and Kim, All of you are in my thoughts and my prayers today as you honor your beautiful Mother and Nana. She was so loved by all who had the opportunity to know her and you could see how much she loved all of you – the sparkle you brought to her eyes and her beautiful smile. I know that your faith will sustain you through this difficult time and in knowing that she is with the Lord in Heaven now watching over all of you.

    My love to you all, Gail

    Ken, Sharon, Jen, and Kim I am so sorry for your loss. There is another angel in Heaven, who will be dearly missed by her friends and family. I only met Nana once, but it is like I have known her a lifetime from the wonderful memories from her granddaughter Jen. She will be missed dearly and will watch over you all. Hugs to you all during this difficult time.
