I was so sad to hear about Maw Croft’s passing, but comforted to know she went to be with our Lord Jesus after her long, painful struggle in the last years. You are all going to miss her very much, but try and remember the fun and personal times. I will remember her infectious laugh, wit and singing! God speed you all comfort and strength for the coming lonely days. But, be of good cheer, it’s not forever! Love y’all!🙏🏻❤️Pat Young

Amelia, and Monica as well as all your family I am so sorry to hear about your Mom and grandmother . She was a sweet lady and I loved her. I am praying for you and your family at this time , losing Mom is one of the hardest things you'll ever have to endure. Monica and Amelia both have been awesome daughters doing all they can for their Mother and that is to be commended. I love you all and again you're in my prayers as well and if there is anything I can do to help you all in anyway please feel free to ask. Asking God to strengthen you all during this time of loss . This is when our faith really has to kick in and realize she is in a better place than we are and she has made her journey She is in the presence of the Lord .
