    This is a charitable act that has no second to none. Its hardest for loving family to say good bye and also to have the courage to say okey go ahead. They command highest of admiratation, respect and appreciation. Let her soul rest in peace in the company of angels and if there is a re-birth, then a life that is free of all pains and sorrow.
