    This is the moment that changed my life forever, the death of losing my sister and my friend. As grief and anger set within, I realize how difficult it is to deal with this intense pain, it’s unbelievably heartbreaking to accept in my mind an image of my sister lying in a box. I’m devastated, upset, and hurt over the lose. I have so many emotions running through my head while trying to accept the realization of my sister’s death. As I rolled back the clock of memories, and the good times we’ve shared as sisters and friend will hold a special place within me always. How we listened to music, danced, and sang our favorite songs was the best memories… I knew that death would come some day, but not quite as quickly as it did. There is nothing that could ever prepared me for this. The tragedy and hurt of losing my sister and friend. I’m completely lost from her passing it seems so unreal, and words cannot express my mental The ability to receive, hold, or absorb. I thought she would to be okay, until I heard otherwise. I’m trying to accept the lose as I struggled with issues of anxieties and fear of breaking down. I will miss her forever, RIP sis, I will always love you and miss you more.

    Ms. Beulah, from the time I first met you, you were always so warm and welcoming to me. I will truly miss hearing your laughter and hearing you call me J. I’m sad that I only got such a brief time with you, but it was filled with so much love. I will also miss spoiling you with my cooking. I’m glad that you are at peace and know you’ll be watching down on all of us. Rest easy.

    Love, your daughter-in-law

    It is so hard saying goodbye to the special people that come into our lives and leave sweet memories. I’ve know you for some years now and grew to favor both you and Pete with each meeting. I wish it could have been longer. I will miss you so much and miss getting your phone calls. I am so sorry to the family for the loss of this beautiful lady.
