David and Family,
So sorry to hear about your mother's passing. I noticed the picture of her has the word "disciple" on the book binding behind her. That, alone, tells me what kind of a person she was. May you feel God's loving arms around you during this time of grief and the many wonderful memories of her keep you smiling.
