    Goodbye my lovely friend, you will be missed by our whole family. I will cherish the photo of us girls posing with roses in our mouths while on vacation in Cuba. I will also forever ponder the joke you told in Playa Del Carmen at Amanda’s wedding! I will probably never understand it and I promise to always break out in laughter when someone mentions ‘belly button’. Cheers to you my friend and to quote your last words to me “I am not afraid because they will never know what hit them”.

    Aline and I were kindred spirits. We enjoyed doing so many of the same things. She was so gifted in everything she touched. All the houses she redecorated, amazing colour schemes, refinishing furniture, so talented in art, sewing, crafting, gardening and so much more. A great sense of humour too. I’ve really missed her since she moved away!

    I’m so sorry that she had to suffer through what she went through. As Billy Joel sang, “Only the good die young”. SHE WAS GOOD.

    Love you Aline. You took a piece of my heart with you when you left.

    Saddened by Aline’s death- thankful we had the opportunity to know each other- and will continue to cherish my table cloths from her
