Dear Kristen, I am only now finding out about your heartbreaking loss. I am so sorry to learn this news of your mother. I first met her in MOPS when you were a tiny, precious, young toddler. She was a beautiful lady and her love for her children was radiant. My thoughts and prayers are of you and your dear sisters.

Psalm 91:4
He will cover you with His feathers. He will shelter you with His wings. His faithful promises are your armor and protection.
