  2. Incredibly sorry for your loss

    Angela, Rachel, Emma, and family, It breaks my heart to know we lost Gaga. She was always singing your praises and the love she had for you was obvious in the way she smiled when speaking of you.

    She will be missed more than you know, but it makes my heart so happy to know that she had Brian there to welcome her into heaven and give her the grand tour! I can only imagine the smile on his face when he realized she had finally made iher way back to him.

    I feel lucky to have known Gaga, but I am reminded by her loss that our time on earth is extremely short, and those of us left behind should seize every opportunity to be patient, kind, loving and forgiving to those around us. I can think of no better way to honor her memory.

    I pray today that peace and serenity will find you and guide you through the coming days.

  3. Such a lovely lady

    Lacy was a good person who honestly cared about others. I will never forget the funny things she had to say and her cheery manner. She endured some really difficult times with remarkable resilience.
