Thank each of you for your understanding and compassion...I want to personally thank each of you for your understanding and compassion during my recent loss. Shi Yin was the most important "person" in my life and her passing was very difficult for me. It was a comfort to know I could entrust her to your care and she would be treated with respect. You have my deepest gratitude.
