Losing a loved one can bring much grief. Please accept my sincere condolences. I love the words spoken in the scripture at 1 Thessalonians 4:14 written by Paul when he was in Corinth "For if we have faith that Jesus died and rose again, so too God will bring with him those who have fallen asleep in death through Jesus". What a wonderful promise. To know that you can see your loved one again!

Your mom would buy an entire kiln load of pots from me sight unseen. I always thought that to be cool. It also did much to build my self confidence.

I liked your mom I'm sorry she's gone.

I understand the statement is obvious, since you only have the one mom. It hurts bad when you lose one. I'm sorry you lost yours.
