Charlie and Sharon,
We're sorry for your loss, but, instead of mourning, we choose to celebrate your mom's memory and her long, full life. We're pretty sure that St. Pete is making sure the gate is polished, and that the gate guards are squared-away.

Sharon, I am so sorry for your loss. I know you were a very devoted daughter. Your mother led such a long life and now she is at peace, watching over you, your children and grandchildren. May God wrap you in His comfort and bring you peace.
