Dear George, Joyce, Chico, & Bobby. I can't tell you how saddened I am about your mother's death. As you all know, I loved her dearly and I will sorely miss her. I feel so bad that I didn't get to talk to her one more time before she died. I'll see you at the funeral.

Hello family:

My condolences to all of you. Unfortunately, I am unable to attend the funeral, however, please know that all of you are in my thoughts and prayers. Auntie May was truly an amazing woman who was warm, funny and had a great sense of humor. She loved her life and her family. She has now crossed over and will be spending time with my Grandma Lena and my Dad! Blessings and strength to you.

Love from all of us

Tanya, Richie, And Gabrielle
