Dominique and Family,
May fond memories of Miss Ethel bring you comfort during this time in your life. Look back on all the good times you shared and were able to smile, laugh, and enjoy each other and family. My heart aches with yours, she was a beautiful person inside and out, always caring and giving of whatever she had.
