David and Family,
I am sad to learn of your mother's passing, but, yet, hopeful, knowing she is with her Lord and Savior and her family members who have passed before her.
I was fortunate to have met her on several occasions- she always impressed me as a vibrant and caring woman. You were definitely blessed to have such a wonderful mother.
David and Family, I am sending warm thoughts and love to each of you.
