Tonyah Fink and Family

Aunt Dorothy, My heart feels your loss. I wll always remember "Beeb's" smile and laugh. She is with Myra now, her dad, Uncle Lou and the rest of the family gone on before. I know how much you're hurting right now. If I could, I'd take the pain away. But I can't. So instead I'm praying that God will provide you with "Heart-shoes" strong enough to withstand even the sharpest stones life's path has. I love you! Tonyah Mae
