    Pam, Kayla and Amber. My heart is just broken for you all. But the undonditional, beautiful, love you all shared and the cherished memories you have will sustain you in peace and strength through this incredibly difficult process of saying "good bye, for now". Dana's wings were ready, your hearts were not. We love you with all of our hearts and are holding you close in prayer every moment.
