Our many prayers and thoughts are with you at this time. Being a Christian, now is the time to Praise him not question him. For he has released your mom from the pain and sorrow she dealt with daily while here on earth and placed her just inside the Pearl Gates where all the Angels sing. Don't let sadness take over your life. She is in GOD'S COUNTRY... where everything is alright.
