May God bless the family and give strength during this mournful time. Earth-bound stress, pain and suffering has ended and joyous heavenly reunion has begun. Think of this as only a temporary separation until we all meet again in heaven. I have many cherished childhood memories of aunt Mildred, never to be taken away or forgotten. It is sad that our physical distance away precludes us being able to embrace, hug and cry with the immediate family. However, we are there in spirit, thoughts and memory. Vanessa and my prayers are with the family. May God bless.
