My sincere condolences to your family in the loss of your mom. Knowing Marion, I am sure she be-lined right into Our Lord's arms, with your dad at His side. My experience with your mom was back in the 80's at Immaculate Conception Church in Anchorville, where she taught me to make rosaries for the missions. I also wrote her a letter asking her for prayers when my marriage was falling apart and she sent me a beautiful letter (which I still have) The important part was I realized she was only allowed to write one letter a month (while she was in the Carmelite Monastery) and my letter was it in the month of December. May you be conforted by the caring, Holy, and genuine Christian woman that she is. God's comforting Blessings to you all.
