    Sister Pally: It broke my heart to lose you. You did not go alone, for part of me went with you, the day God called you home. Rest in peace my Darling Sister. I miss you so.

    I have often thought that a person`s “grade” in life can often be known by looking at their family. Congratulations Grandma Louise, you have easily achieved an A++. It is such an honor to have worked with and enjoyed the company of truly beautiful people. Thank you forever Grandma Louise.
