Heaven has gained a very special, loving angel. There are no words that can express the loss that I feel.

“Blessed is the Father who lets the Lord be his guiding hand, Whose faith brings his family courage, Whose wisdom comes from God, And whose children still honor him”.

” I hope you are dancing in the sky”.
” If I had only Known”.
YOU were the “Wind beneath my Wings”.

Heaven is now your home.


I will miss you forever.
