Mama is going to miss you.  You are my sunshine.  I love you to the moon and back.

Words seem so far from us as to what to say, what to do at a time like this.  I have never experienced the loss of a child, grandchild, great grandchild, nephew and only one cousin at such an early age.  When Karen told me earlier today I didn't have to do anything, my reply was "If I had to do it, I wouldn't.  I love you so I want to and will."  The most important thing, I can do is pray and I will definitely do that also.  Just hold tightly to God's unchanging hand of love.  Grieve as you must, not as others will tell you is right, wrong or indifferent. Travel the pathways ahead, there is no pathway as there are many.  I know you will lean on each other but also on us, you have always been there for others and now the page is turned and it is your turn to lean.  God bless each of you in this-difficult time!  Love to all
