So sorry for the loss of your mother, grandmother, and friend. We met at church. I'd see her first with her husband for many years. Then later with her son, Franco. She was a special soul. May she Rest In Peace.

My thoughts are with the family during this difficult time. I hope that the promise in 1 Thessalonians 4:14 can bring comfort. Knowing that there is hope for our loved ones lost in death can be reassuring
