Your mom was such a special person and everyone loved her. I never heard a single person say a bad comment about her. I know losing your mom is hard and I pray for you and the entire family to have peace knowing she is with your dad and many other friends and family. Take care and please let me know if there is anything I can do

Carolyn, I'm so sad to hear of your mother's passing. She was a beautiful lady. It is such a hard task to lose someone who has been such a huge part of your life, but what a sweet blessing it is to know where she is and that she is with your Dad, our Heavenly Father and our Savior. May the Lord's tender mercies and comfort be with you and your family. I love you and your girls. Judy
