Life with you as we know it will never be the same. We are left with thoughts, wishes and memories. Your journey on this side has ended. We were completely taken by surprise when we heard, your health was deteriorating. Everyone wanted the situation to be different, however, that
wasn't the Master's plan.

Your compassion for others was relentless, your mental strength was unsurpassed. Your steadfastness was unmovable; you stood firm until all was said and done, Then, peacefully, without any disruptions, you ascended.
__________The Thoughts of Not having You are infinite____________
You realized the infirmities in your earthly body and knew something had to be done. It was going to be a constant annoyance, therefore a decision to abdicate was made, after all, if the infirmity wasn't going to leave you, then, the decision to leave It, was definite.
