This story touched my heart. May God comfort her family members in your time of lost. I lost my mother to cancer almost a year and a half ago and I still miss her every day. I know her youngest son will be taken very good care of at Holy Angels because I worked there and the residents are "Truly God's Holy Angels" and the staff treat them that way!!! Again May God be with you always!!!
