    My beautiful, crazy sister was taken from us so fast.  We did not have a chance to say goodbye.  My heart is broken and shattered.

    Not only a sister-in-law, but a very good friend.  I will miss our long telephone calls which included a lot of laughter and on occasion tears.  You are now at peace and will not be forgotten.  Our deepest sympathy to the family.
