Just wanted my family here, to know of the passing of my sister Deven, in Tennessee today. I have always said when learning of someone who is ill, that they go gently into that good night,and G-d was good, she did.
She will be cremated as was her wish...and her ashes buried in Tn.....Thanks for listening.
Trip, with her book & tea!

Sorry for your loss, Trip. So glad she went gently in the night - that's something peaceful for both of you.

I am so very very sorry Trip. Even though I believe Deven is in a far better place, it is so rough, especially with a sibling of which I've lost two, my identical twin Spencer in '96 and recently my sister Sandra.
You and all the members of your family have my deepest condolences and I am so thankful for you that she went so gently.
