Mary Elizabeth...that sweet, peaceful smile on your face says it all to me.  Thank you for being my friend through all the tough years of school, with the peer pressure all around us.  Thank you for being such a calming influence in my life.  I love all the comments of your kids, because they confirm that you were still a very much loved person in all your family life. , and that is such a blessing.
