    My heartfelt condolences to Rob and Kim on the passing of this truly lovely lady who loved you both so much. I will miss the chats Tam and I had through messenger and will always be so thankful I called her ‘friend’. I know she would have been so very welcomed when she got to rainbow bridge.

    Over 35 years, fate took us both to different sides of the country but landed us minutes apart. No matter how many times we lost touch, we always reconnected and were always part of each other’s family. You were proof that sisters didn’t have to be blood. You will be in my heart for every adventure, every exploration, and every animal I find to rub a furry belly. I will miss you to no end but I know you’re still with us and watching over over us. Love you so much sis.
