My dear friend...so go and run free with the angels. Dance around the golden clouds. Our Lord has chosen you to be with him and I feel so very proud. Although...he has taken you from us and our pain a lifetime will last. Your memories will never escape me but make me glad for the time we had. Your face will always be hidden...deep within my heart. Each precious moment you gave me will never ever depart. So go and run free with the angels as they sing so tenderly. But mom, please be sure to tell them to take good care of you for me. so as always, no goodbyes, just see you soon.

The very 1st 30 seconds I knew Sis (not meant to be explained here) was one of the most memorable moments of my life.

Dear Family & Friends of Sis,
My heart is breaking for you and with you.
As I visited Jefferson Manor almost every day
for the past year I looked forward to visiting with this
vivacious lady. Sis sparkled with joy when speaking of her beloved
family. Sis entertained with stories of her incredible
experiences, achievements & spirited descriptions of daily life.
Sis will be deeply missed. Please accept our heartfelt
sympathy. With prayers, Cheryl (& Alyce) Spitzer.
