Let me start off by saying I'm very sorry to see such a loving and kind person go through all your mother went through. She fought long and hard, but even though she will be missed she is rejoicing with the angels at the feet of our Lord and Savior.
This is Janice Collier Rohr by the way.
I'm very sorry that I didn't make it to the funeral home for visitation, I hope to come by before the funeral. Our families have shared many fun times together and I still laugh when I think of all the things we kids got into. Please know that I'm very sad about your moms passing and I will be praying for all of you. May God watch over you all and keep you close in the coming weeks and months. Love to all of you, Janice
