We are forever inspired by her courage and strength, and she will forever live in our hearts.  Her spirit is like a beautiful galaxy, it shines like a million stars and holds our love safe within the light. Our valley of grief is a journey of love.

"Love is patient, love is kind.  It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.  It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.  Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.  It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.  Love never fails" - 1 Corinthians 13:4-8
