Sis you have gone to a place where there will be no more pain and suffering. You are a child of God now. Your work on earth is done. You will use your talent to write more moving poems and paint more beautiful paintings to share with loved ones who have been waiting there for you. You will be missed by many! You new life is just beginning. All my love, Janice
