Although we met only once, you made a distinct impression.
Kind, comfortable with yourself, friendly and loving with others, you welcomed our diverse group with smiles and food. There is no doubt in my mind that although you were taken from us too soon, you had more than average influence on the world at large, the community, and your loved ones.
I am reminded that God is Great and Good, that the world reflects that Love, and that you were here to remind us of those blessings. We are richer for that knowledge, and for the time you touched our lives, however short or long, we are grateful. In kind remembrance,
