"I have lived among great people in my life; I have loved many. I have left this world, but in my place I leave my six children to continue the legacy that I could not fulfill - and their children, my beautiful grandchildren. Matters of the heart are hard to understand; my true love of 40 years, Fatima, was called to Heaven earlier this year - I've missed you dearly and I've heard you. So to my children, my grandchildren, all of my family and friends, I say my good byes. I will cherish your memories as I hope you cherish mine, but the time has come to once again join my true love, to feel whole again. We will watch all of you from Heaven and await your arrival when the good Lord calls your name to join us again in the heavens."
