    My Dear Sister Juanita,
    I know, that your heart is daunting with the unimaginable grief of Ed whom you loved and nurtured unconditionally for many years. Yet, I hope the love that Ed returned to you for many years until the end of his life, brings you much solace, peace and acceptableness with time, during all your disquieting thoughts of your moments spent together.

    I love , Your sister

    There is no one who can tell you what you are feeling at this present time. The thoughts of the good times as well as the pain of the last hours you had with Ed, penetrate your thoughts. I will tell you, that if you will consistently try to remember the good times that you and Ed had together, those thoughts should help you through the days to come. You have my continual love and support .
