Dearest Bob, Mark, Patty, and Barbara,

I am so sorry that I couldn't be there at the funeral. Your mom was one terrific lady and always made us feel so special when we would come an visit. I always remember her buttermilk pies. Yum.

May God Bless all of you during this time.

Love you all!

I like to believe that when we lose someone close to us they still live through us and give us strength. The time we have spent with those we've lost makes them part of us. With deepest sympathy in the loss of your mother, I pray for strength for you and your family during this difficult time.

Dear Barbara, it is always with mixed feelings to hear that a devoted Christian warrior has been called to our eternal home - especially one as dear to you as your Mother. Know that you and your family, as well as your Mother's devoted caregiver, are in my prayers. I am confident that your faith will strengthen you and your cherished memories will sustain you during this difficult time. Love, Becky
