Linda, I remember how welcomed your mom made me feel when I came to visit: her sincere smiling face and her warm comforting, cheerful voice. Your home was full of laughter and kindness and it was because of your mom. Think about those times and smile.

We know not the year, day nor time when the good Lord will call us home but we know if we have acknowledged our Lord and savior Jesus Christ he will take care of us. It is hard to lose a parent or anyone we love and the road to finding peace is never easy. As you look in the mirror or ponder in your mind you see and feel a part of them in you. She gave you love and helped you move forward in life. Seek help if the burden becomes to heavy. Call on friends if you need a comforting word. Turn to prayer to seek God´s wisdom and solace. Remember her with loving memories.
