Dean.
My condolence to you and your family in the passing of your mother. My prayer is for God to continue to strength you and your family thought this difficult time.
“No matter what your trials are, or how big your mountain seems
The lord is there to see you through; He'll go to all extremes
So if your cross seems hard to bear, and you know not what to do,
The one who loves you most of all will be there to see you through.”
