KB, am so sorry about your loss. Know that Steve is now at peace and pray you will find strength and solitude in your fond memories and just knowing that he is no longer sufferring. When my brother passed away in May, I felt in my heart that this was his choice and he is now in peace. His last days were entirely peaceful and comforting. We find comfort in knowing that our loved ones are at a peaceful place – even tho it is so difficult for us to deal with the loss of their presense in our lives.

Talked to Brenda Knight aka Peanut tonight – we are both very sad we will not be there for you tomorrow. We would both like to have a time for us to be together in the next couple of weeks when the family has left and we will have some girlfriend time to spend together.

Much Love you and you are in my prayers! Sandy
