Eric and Julie ... I am sorry you have to go through this loss. My prayers are with you and the family during this time of mourning. ??

Perhaps they are not the stars in the sky, rather openings where our loved ones shine down to let us know they are happy. Aunt Rose blessed our lives with humor, wisdom, love, laughter, and the best hugs ever. I will miss her.
