I will never forget the advice she gave me visiting her the last time I saw her. She was an intelligent women who knew the hearts and soul of people. She was not afraid to tell it like it was. She is one that definitely did not subscribe to the 'blood is thicker than water' theory. Blessings to this Godly woman. Karen is so right. She definitely told it like it was.

Love never ends
It streches through time
We never lose those we love
Their love never dissipates
But, rests in our heart and mind
