Everyone I am so sorry for your loss. What a great lady/mother/wife/sister I could list every time we gave your Mom a hard time but I am not sure there are enough characters on here.

You all are in my prayers. I know from listening to Chook talk about her mom that she was an amazing, talented, loving mother and grandmother and she is going to be greatly missed. Thankful to know that I will one day get to meet her in heaven.

Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you. 1 Peter 5:7
