 Words cannot begin to express my sympathy. You know where I am if you or your family need anything. I did not know your sister but I know you shared with me the compassion and love for others that she had. In her drawings and paintings she showed her love for all of God's creation. Cherish the moments you had and hold the memories in your heart. I know, through you, that she was a special, talented, loving, and compassionate woman who made a difference in her time here on earth. Love to you and your family.
