I just heard about the passing of your Mom. I know first hand that it is a difficult time for you and your family and Scott and I will keep you in our prayers. Your Mom brought such joy and love to me throughout the years and she was always good for a wonderful Jesus-sized hug. May God bless and keep you during this time of loss. Keep the faith and hold on to hope.
