Lorraine, So sorry for the loss of your beautiful Mother. When I look at all the pictures I see you in her and when I read the wonderful story about your Mother I know that the apple doesn't fall far from the tree. May the great memories you have of your precious gift called "Mother", give you strength and joy during this time of grief and sadness. 

You and your family are in my prayers.

Blessings to you and your family,
Meriel Jackson

Donna and wonderful family...

I had the pleasure of meeting Carol on two occasions. A sharp, current, and witty person. She seemed loving, and very proud of her family. 

God bless you Carol for a job well done here on earth. Please look over all of your amazing family and all of their friends that will sincerely miss you.

Blessings to all .
