Rest in paradise. You are god sent. You saved my life when I was 19 years old. Saved me from a life that I cannot thank you enough for. You passed away 2 weeks after we last spoke and changed my life. I am 27 years old now with a beautiful family and an amazing career. You came here as an angel and I thank God for sending you to me in a time of need. Thank you so much.
