    A beautiful love and light has shown brightly in this world and made it more beautiful because she lived!

    She touched the hearts of those she loved forever and the legacy of that love will never end!

    The most beautiful tribute in pictures of a woman who loved greatly. She cheered on the happy achievements and got on her knees to lift all of you up in the sad times!

    God made her a fragrance that will linger on and on. Until one day, when you see and enjoy her once again without goodbyes! All my prayers to your family as you mourn this great loss of your lives. I pray God will ease your pain and comfort you!!
