I will miss you so much, my dearest friend in life. You were beautiful in all senses of the word. You were a wonderful wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and friend. You have to be with the angels, for you are an angel. I will miss you terribly. I am sending my deepest sympathy to David, the entire family and to the wonderful care givers at Northwest Deaconess Health Center. Much love from, Liz (Mrs. Olsen of Arlington, Virginia)
