I always enjoyed talking with you and your Mom and seeing how much you loved and cared for one another. Praying that the Lord will give you comfort, and joining you in mourning the passing of such a dear and sweet lady.

Marissa, I’m so sorry for your loss. I always remember your mother being happy, having a beautiful smile on her face and a sweet little laugh. I know you will miss her terribly. You were a wonderful daughter to your mother.
