    The loss of a loved one is truly the hardest thing for a loving family to have to do is to say goodbye but to know that Dana will be with you all every day is a blessing. You all know she is happy and pain and worry-free and are singing and dancing on the streets of gold holding hands with Jesus Christ himself. I love you all very much and will keep all of you in my prayers. RIP Dana
