It was my honor to meet and know May the last few months of her life. What an incredible lady! The love of her family and life itself was inspirational. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you.

At the very least she can say is that she lived and she loved. She will be missed. I am sorry we were not closer but the time we did spend together she always made me feel like I had always been a part of the family. ❤
