To a loved one who was so loving , warm and kind to us on our last visit there.We lived so many miles away but still i kept in touch with her mom and I always enquired of her and sent my love. I was so sad to hear about her situation and the pain and suffering that she had to go through for such a young person. She did not get to live her life as she wanted to I'm sure because of her illness but stayed strong until the end. My heart goes out to all the family members in this time of grief. I may not be able to be there in person but accept my sympathy on behalf of my mother and my children. May her soul rest in peace.
