What a journey we have had! Mom was always a rock in our lives!
I look forward to seeing my mom, and my friend in paradise under Jehovah’s Kingdom arrangement with Jesus as king of that government when she is resurrected. In the meantime, I pray for my siblings and her grandchildren and great grandchildren to also be there in paradise to welcome our rock, our mom back to life.
