The loss is really felt. As her Goddaughter, I was lucky enough to have received first-hand her love and kindness. If anything had happened to my parents, I know she would have been there for me. Through our relationship, she gave me the only brother I have - my Godbrother Chris. My condolences to you and my Godfather Bill. p.s. I looked forward to going to her house during Christmas time to pick up my gift because she gave the best presents.
