  15. This woman was precious to me. She was a ray of sunshine and showed me so much love in such a small time. We texted occasionally and were looking forward to getting together one day soon. She was truly a special woman. She once left me the sweetest voicemail I have ever heard; I will go back and listen when I need a pick-me-up. I hope you all have many voicemails to replay. I knew little about her life, but one thing is for sure, we shared a great love for one another. She was a bright light! I’m blessed to have known her, it was a God thing! Sending much love to family and loved ones 🤍
