John, Rose and Corey my heart is with you! May the angels look down upon you and smile. May the rains wash away your sorrow and your tears. When the time is right may there be a beautiful sign (a hummingbird, a faun, a cardinal) to let you know she has made it to heaven and smiles as she is reunited with her loved ones.
