Grief is the last act of love we have to give to those we loved. Where there is deep grief, there was great love. You know that if you are sad when someone dies, then you are lucky. It means that person was a special part of your life.
The family wishes to thank everyone for your prayers, kind words, and expressions of sympathy.
