As I sit here thinking about you, I thank God for having a wonderful mother like you. I wouldn't be the woman that I am today if it wasn't for you. You helped me to raise up Christopher and you helped with Christian also. They miss you too! Chistian talks about you all the time. We love you!

2011-09-09 08:33:36My husband and I would like to offer our deepest sympathy for the loss of your mother, grandmother, and family member. We pray that our loving Heavenly Father continues to wipe the tears from your eyes as we all await the day when we will be able to welcome our loved ones back by means of the resurrection. (Revelation 21:3,4 & John 5:28, 29) You are in our thoughts and prayers.
