Karen, my prayers are with you at this difficult time.
I remember when your mom was my neighbor. She, Grace Walma, Ellen Whip and myself use to get together for fun. I especially remember when we went driving around to look at Christmas lights. She directed us to your house, she was so proud it.
I didn't know your mom as well as her close neighbors, but she was always kind and gracious to me. I still have a photo of her and the rest of us at a birthday party for Ellen Whip.
I know you're hurting now, but this too will pass and you'll come to glory in the fact that she's now with Jesus. There can be no denial that that's where true happiness resides.
