Remember your Mother will continue to smile down on each of you, as she has now joined the loved ones who went before her. You will see her again and rejoice at that meeting. May God Bless each of you and meet your every need as you say good-bye to this precious lady for just a short time.
May you find peace in your walk with the Lord.

Dear Cora and Barbara,
Praying for you both and your family. May God give you each love, strength, and peace during this difficult time. I know that you said you all were ready, but it doesn't matter how much we prepare because it still hurts. Know that it is okay to cry, laugh, and whatever else that you may feel. Prayers, Love, and Blessings, Pastor Page
