    My dearest “baby” cousin, Mary Beth – what can be said about you except
    that the light you demonstrated to all of us will be sorely missed. I know that you struggled at times, but you always knew that the struggle made you a better person. You took nothing for granted and just wanted to be all you could be for your children. May God grant you rest in His glorious presence, where all the tears that you sowed on this earth will yield an eternal harvest of joy.
