im am so sorry for your lost please keep this in mind: But because of the resurrection hope, Christians are told: “We do not want you to be ignorant concerning those who are sleeping in death; that you may not sorrow just as the rest also do who have no hope.”—1 Thess. 4:13.

Juanita has been a mother to many of us as we have grown up and now grow old. I will never forget how she helped the UNA cheerleaders over the years with encouragement, meals or whatever she could. I know Heaven has a bright angel now in Juanita. May God comfort her family with her memory.

Gloria-I am so sorry to hear of your mother's passing. I became acquainted with her while she was at River City Rehab during the time my mother was there. She was always so kind to my mother and to me and always told me that I didn't have to worry about mother when I had to leave because she would look after her for me. I have learned that she was a "mother" to a lot of people!! How wonderful it is to have the privilege of having such a loving mother. Love to you and your family.
