Mom was truly a loving person. She lived a selfless life. Even though she was constantly with physical pain most of her life, she always had a servant’s heart. Mom loved the Lord. She was faithful to church and served the Lord in countless ways. She has inspired me to live for the Lord. Mom trusted the Lord as her Saviour ;therefore, I know she is with the Lord now. Mom shared the truth about salvation through Jesus with her family and countless other people. I will miss Mom and the precious memories of her life.
