Susan, I'm sorry to hear about the loss of your mother. She was a sweet lady from the time I met her and use to walk her to the dining room for breakfast. You have my deepest condolences. I pray that God continues to strengthen you in the days to come. I love you and take care. Your mother is in a much better place. To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord.
