My heart is still breaking over this. Aline and her brother were at our home numerous times, and I met their younger brother at the funeral - what a brave, gacious, young man he is! All I can do is pray for the family to find strength in the long, painful road ahead. But I also want to convey what a wonderful young woman Aline was and that Jardel holds a very special spot in the hearts of so many people. It is truly a loss.
