  1. This earthly angel was a true example of living a Christian life. She has taught us to think of others and do good for others before thinking of ourselves. The absolute most selfless person we have known and we are honored to have called her a friend, though she was so much more than that. Our sympathy can best be expressed by the example of life we hope to live now that she is watching over us. Thank you, God, for blessing us with this incredible human being in our lives, and for leaving us with a spirit that can only spread happiness and thoughtfulness, lead by her example. We love you dearly, “Abel-Mabel” !
