    For someone I have only known for 2 years, my heart is heavy with sadness for loosing you so soon. I am grateful that you were seated at a table next to us and that those assigned to your table didn’t show up, because if they did, we would not have met you. I cherish the times we have been able to get together since that first meeting and for the kindness you have shown me. Thank you for the laughs, and serious talks, the compassion, and the generosity you brought to my life. You were an angel on earth, so I know you are already an angel in heaven. You will be greatly missed.
