I was blessed to have a wonderful Mother and family. When I think of my Mother I immediately think of Faith, Family and Love. She received all of the gifts of the Holy Spirit and used them and the living words of God to live her life to help others and gently guide them to Jesus. During her last days she continued to share valuable insights. The final blessing she shared was her passion that we should not judge others to make them feel unworthy or in any way an outcast; instead we need to show compassion. I am so blessed to have had such a wonderful influence in my life. Thank you Mom for passing on your faith and love. I have peace knowing you our at the best prayer meeting ever and we will all continue to be prayed for until we see you again. I love you Mom!
