    The Lord has blessed our lives with meeting and becoming friends with this wonderful angel of God. She warmed are hearts when ever we shared time together. God thank you for bringing her into our lives and we pray that Lee is comforted by knowing you have her in your loving arms.

    Bernice, we fell in love with you after knowing you and Lee for a short time. We quickly felt like you were family. We will treasure each memory of you.

    Our hearts are heavy with sadness, but we rejoice that your battle is won and you’re pain free – in His loving arms!

    Heaven has received a very special angel.
