  1. Amanda Beasley says:

    Every tear shows how much you were loved. Every heartache shows how much you mattered. None of us would be here without you. None of us would be the same without knowing you. You left behind a legacy. We all lost a legend. May peace be yours after a long lifetime. May you be loved and cared for after years of caring for others. We love you. Life will forever be altered without your presence.
