    All -  I am sorry for your loss.  I know she was my sisters and my Aunt, but we never really knew her after Grandma Hay passed away.  I know losing someone who means something to you is one of the hardest things to happen in life.  Try and cherish all the good things and ignore those that aren't.  May God Bless each and everyone of you.
