"Thinking of you today, and all the lives you touched with your graceful and loving personality. You will always be among my fondest memories."
"A very special woman who raised a son who served his country so well.
"Romans 8: 38, 39, Paul says, “For I’m persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
This is speaking about the love of God, but it can apply to a woman /mother that has shown unconditional love through all the ups and downs in life. Lois Currin was an example of unconditional love to all she touched. I am so grateful to reflect upon her love today as I remember the wonderful legacy she left us all. Not only through her life,but the lives of her children."
