    You were the BEST! You loved puzzles, watching CSI and getting Wendy’s burgers.
    You never spoke an unkind word about anyone or anything.
    You loved your family unconditionally.
    You are now in Heaven with our Lord and reunited on a park bench with Pap.
    Heaven is rejoicing now that you are there.
    I will miss you dearly and will see you soon!
