Alberta Barcliff Obituary

“It might have appeared to go unnoticed, but I've got it all here in my heart.  I want you to know I know the truth, of course I know it; I would be nothing without you.  Did you ever know that you're my hero? You're everything I wish I could be. I could fly higher than an eagle, for you are the wind beneath my wings”
