Queen D, I know you are in a peaceful place and may you rest for eternity, blessed angel.

In my mind I can hear your laughter and voice right now...we shared so many laughs and thoughts and talked about so much. Your absence is a painful void that cannot be filled.

Most importantly you taught me how to love a stranger. Thank you for blessing me and others with your love.

Rest easy~ Love ya!
