    There is so much that I want to say or need to say but there are no words that I can find that will express how I truly feel at this time. You know that you both were like my “second” set of parents, and I love you and love him the same. I wish I could express and show you how truly sorry I am. My prayers, love, support, and strength are coming your way and I am asking God to keep his arms around you and everyone right now.
    I love you Mamma Hazel
