I am at a loss for adequate words to express my sadness for you. I had the blessed opportunity of knowing your mom and I know heaven just received one of the most special angels.

I too loss my mom a month ago and I stand by your side in prayer.

My dear Kevin & Candace, I am so grateful and delighted that dear Cardiss requested that I sing a musical tribute at her Memorial Service. "It Well with My Soul" was so meaningful to sing because I know that when she graduated to a higher plain to sit at the feet of Jesus, I can almost hear her say as she flashed that amazing smile of hers "Lord, I have fought a good fight and now I proclaim, It is Well with My Soul". Enjoy life as you begin to cherish her aweet memories.

With Love,
Jill
