She is a loving and caring person. She is very talented and hard working. She is an artist having painted many beautiful paintings. She has many friends. All here loved her very much. We miss her terribly and our hearts are breaking with sadness.
Please take her into you arms and welcome her into your heavenly kingdom. Let her hurt no more. Give her everlasting peace and joy.
