Diane and family: My deepest sympathy in the loss of your precious Mom. She always had a smile that brightened any room. I know the journey you've been on, but, God gives us strength to do the best for the ones we love so much. She's healed now, reunited with Cindy, David, your Dad and all the others waiting to see her. I believe my Mom was in that group to meet her. Mama thought so much of your Mom. I pray you'll find that peace that passeth all understanding. God be with you. Sending prayers to you all.
