Sharon, Paula, and Toddy I am so sorry for your loss! I loved Charlotte so much and will never forget the support she gave me during my baby shower.

Life is so precious, Loss is so sudden and Hearts are so broken yet in the wake of such a loss we often question things that we don’t and may never understand. So we look for comfort in the belief of Love’s everlasting connection. Always keep your minds and hearts open to this connection and may that Love lift you, hold you close and give you peace. Forever in my thoughts and prayers. I Love You. LaDonna
Prayers of comfort for all of your family
