    We are so sadden that the time has come. The one thing that makes us a little better about this, is knowing that she is no longer hurting and with Grandpa and the rest of our family. I really wanted to come but there is no way we can make it. I Charles am one of her Grandsons. You’ll truly be missed.

    Love and Miss you
