Relation: Family Friend

Since I learned of Ina’s passing, I find myself thinking of you and your family and how much we will all miss her. I am comforted because I am one of the lucky ones whose life was touched by this very special lady. We weren’t direct family but she always made us feel as just one one the gang. I have many fond memories and I join you and the many others who will miss her, but I remain grateful still for having known her.
