Michele (PIC) and your family,
You already KNOW how much you mean to me but I could not let this opportunity go by without telling you so. I cry with you and your family and send lots of hugs and prayers not just now but in the coming weeks and months as you adjust without this integral family member. Believe me, I do know.
