Cheli, I was sad to hear of your passing, yet relieved to know that the pain you endured in this life is over. I admired your strength and courage in dealing with all your burdens. I admired your many talents, your creativity, your loving spirit, your kindness, and most of all, your unwavering faith in God. This world will feel the void of your absence, but you are now resting in the arms of your Creator. May you rest in peace. You’ve earned it. I love you, Cheli ? Mary, Mother of God, pray for her. ?
