To Jill,

I am so sorry to hear of your mother's passing... such a hard experience to lose a mom and too, your dad not so long ago. Time stands still a little bit.. perhaps an attempt to allow one to semi process how one longs to have the person back..and an ache to know that we must wait awhile to be reunited with them...surely that is the beauty of death for the believer... God has it covered doesn't He... that truly we WILL be together again....I send my prayers and compassion at this hard time..till that time .take good care of yourself and know that I sincerely care ....Marleen Crockett LMHC AMIkids Pinellas

Mom I missed you even before you left us to enter your eternal home. I miss you beyond words. I am so glad that I was able to be with you when you entered the gates of Heaven. You will always be in my heart. I rest assured knowing that you are at peace now. I am so blessed to have had you as my Mother. I love you so very much and will miss you until the day we are reunited in Heaven.

Your daughter, Jill
