I just wanted to express my condolences for your loss of this beautiful woman. I know you have many found memories of her to treasure forever. It's comforting to know that God too will treasure her in his limitless memory. He won't ever forget even the smallest details about her personality. How we all look forward to the fulfillment of John 5:28,29 when Jehovah God will use his Son Jesus to call all those in his memory back to life. Please read that scripture in your personal copy of the Bible. All is not lost when it comes to death of our loved ones. Jehovah provided a way out through the ransom sacrifice of Jesus. How grateful we can be for his undeserved love and kindness. has more information.

Very sorry for your loss. I met your mom down by Hometown Market almost every day. I live near the store. She was such a kind person. She would always make sure that I had a cart from the store. We would always talk about the lottery. She was a wonderful person. I was wondering where she was when I didn't see here. I'm going to miss not talking to her. She truly was a very kind and lovely person.. God bless you in your time of sorrow!
