    I feel the joy that your mom has gone Home to be with our Lord as well as to be with you dad, grandparents and Judy. I also feel the sadness that each of you children and grandchildren are experiencing. You all have had such a deep love for your parents and that will never go away. It’s my prayer that our Lord will wrap His arms around each of you and give you comfort and strength each and every day. Feel free to cry. God gave us tears and what did God ever create that was not good. Laugh because He also gave us laughter and laughter is not disrespectful. Laugh at the silly things mom may have said or done. Laugh at some of the things she did with you or to you as you were growing up. And love. I think you have always been a close family. Draw even closer as brother and sisters. Mom and dad would have wanted it that way.
    I wish I could be there with each of you but I’m physically finding it more difficult to drive long distances. May our God watch over and bless you every day.

    The sweetest woman I er knew she was truly a blessing in my life and always showed love and kindness.. I’ll forever remember her as a beautiful graceful amazing woman who never judged or had a negative thought about anyone. I’m thankful for ever moment I was around her. I know there will never be another person on this planet to come close to being a fraction of the example of light and love like she was here. God bless you precious lady and thank you for everything with all my respect and love, till I see you again. Rest peacefully beautiful..
