Judy, Shane and Sean I am so sorry for the loss and sadness you are feeling and the others in her life are feeling as well. It took mee awhile but I finally came to realize those I love never go any further away than my heart. I truly believe you all now have a beautiful angel close by watching over you just as she did in this life. Take care of yourselves.
