We were just informed by our neighbor, Eric, of the passing of your mother. Please know that you will be in our thoughts and prayers. I know there is a void that can never be fully replaced. She blessed many people in her 97 years.
Let the peace and comfort that only comes from the Lord take you through these days.

We care,
Marlin, Esther, Jeremiah and Jewel
