    I am so very sorry for your great loss.  Vy was a very strong, independent woman who was very kind and generous.  I enjoyed having her as a client and she became like family to me.  You all are in my thoughts and prayers.  May God bless you and keep you, in this time of mourning and always.

    I couldn't have asked for a more patient and understanding grandmother. I miss you dearly already but the memories we've shared will forever be at the forefront of my mind - we had some humorous ones! I love you, and don't worry, I'll be sure to stay out of (some) trouble :)
