    I am very sorry for your loss. Ardeth was a good person and I always enjoyed the short conversations I had with her. I know this is a tough time for the entire family but just remember all the great times you all had with her and remember she is now somewhere enjoying not only her brother's company but all those that have passed that she loved.
