Dear Tom and Family,

What a beautiful picture of your dear Mom. What a beautiful life. Your family is so wonderful and lucky to have had so much love and strength from great parents.

She now has the ultimate healing. Resting in peace...or maybe catching up with old friends that have gone on before.

Sending our love,
Stephen, Pamela and Kristopher
