Dear Uncle Bud and Family, I am so sorry for your loss and I am praying for each of you. I look forward to seeing Aunt Donna in Heaven someday and I know she is rejoicing with Jesus, my mom and all of our family that’s gone Home already. I will always remember her laughter, and only wish I had been able to make more memories with her and all of you. I’m sorry that I am not able to be there, but you all are close in my heart. God bless you all! I love you!
