I heard in church about your mom’s passing. She was a wonderful person. I always enjoyed chatting with her . She had great love for her grandchildren. Her commitment to her family was evident in all she did. Her love of her Savior shined through in all her volunteer work. I know that God will be holding you and helping each family member. May God give you His peace.
In His love,
Jane and Terry Wolfe
