While we grieve her loss, I hope we can find peace knowing that you did everything you could to make her comfortable and to make it possible to be with people who love her. Many people don't get that opportunity at the end.

You're in our thoughts & prayers!

Inez was a special lady.  Always had a joke to tell.  Loved to talk 'gardening' with my husband.
We'll miss her.
