My heart is broken to hear about Daisy's passing. I lived next door to Daisy my entire life it seems. She was like a part of my family. I remember always going over to her house, either to swing on her porch swing and talk, or even just to sit in her living room and chat. Even after I moved away, I always found myself going over to say hi to Daisy and to see how she was doing. I saddened me to hear of her passing. I know she is in a better place. I send my condolences at this very difficult time and I wish that I was able to show my love to her by attending her funeral, but I am unable to make the trip. I will always have fond memories of her and will keep them with me forever.
