Condolences to all of your families, Terry, Steve and Mike! I pray for God's strength and His comfort in your healing! So wonderful to know Dee was a woman of great faith. How much comfort that must bring you! The author is unknown in this lovely prayer that I'd like to share with you all! "If Roses Grew in Heaven" Lord, please pick a bunch of roses for me, place them in my Mother's arms, and tell her they're from me. Tell her I love her and miss her, and when she turns to smile, place a kiss upon her cheek and hold her for a while. Because remembering her is easy, I do it every day, but there's an ache within my heart, that will never go away.

Mom, your passion for your family, friends, church and God, was remarkable. By your steadfast belief in your faith, you helped me to find my own. I miss you so much, it hurts sometimes, but then the Cardinals visit the feeder, and I know you are here with me. Love you and Miss you.
