Bruce and Larry, My deepest Sympathy in the loss of your mother. I had the opportunity to assist her with a few things after your father passed away. It's important to remember The special people in our lives are never really gone. They have a cherished place in our hearts where they will always be remembered for the love they shared and the happiness they brought serving our Lord and Savior. I'm praying that you find comfort in knowing your mother and father are celebrating together in heaven.
