Mona, Jennifer, and the rest of the family,

I was so sorry to see that your mother/grandmother has gone home to be with the Lord and wanted to let you know I am thinking of you all. I pray the Lord will bless each of you with the comfort you need at this time knowing that she is in a better place where there is peace and love and no pain. Losing a loved is so much harder on all of us left behind as I am sure you know. I pray that the memories you have of her time on earth with you will give you the peace and comfort you need to get thru the rough times. Hugs for all of you
