Oscar my condolences to you and your family on the loss of your mother. I am so glad I got to meet her when you took her to church with you. She was a very sweet lady and very friendly. My prayers are with you and your family. Mourn with the hope that one day very soon we will all be together forever living with our Lord and Savior. Till then, I am here for you.

Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his faithful servants. (Psalm 116:15.)
