    This is so hard to believe. We had not seen each other in a few years, but loved her dearly. We kept in touch on birthdays and Christmas. We worked together at Kenlea. I am so saddened by her death. I pray that God will be with each and every one of you in the months ahead without her. Lots of love from my home to yours.
