I am so sad of my grandmother’s passing, but I know she wouldn’t want me to be sad. She is no longer suffering and I know God takes the best. May God bless her soul.

As we would always end our times together, “Love you my friend.” My condolences and prayers to your family. May all your wonderful memories with Madeleine comfort you at this difficult time.
