    A beautiful angel has left the earth but my heart will never forget your generous heart and caring nature. Mrs. “B'” -you were like a second Mom to me and had a big impact on my life. I contribute my love of “crafting” to you as well as the many other “life skills” you taught me along the way. Most of all, I loved your companionship during my early teenage years as well as helping you care for your 3 young sons, who I considered my “little brothers” at the time. You constantly encouraged me and gave me a sense of self confidence during critical years of my life. You will be missed by many on this earthly plane but joyfully greeted by many In Heaven. Even though we have fell out of touch in recent years, I know I have another angel watching over me.
    May you rest amongst the other angels,
    Karin Churchill-DeMarco
