Our hearts go out to everyone who knew and loved my Mom. May the Lord comfort and console you in this sad time. The silver lining in this cloud is that Mom knew Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior! “Absent from the body, present with the Lord”. Those who also know Jesus Christ will be together forever with the Lord. We look forward to that great reunion in Heaven! There is great comfort in that. I wish that the whole world know Jesus Christ as Lord today.
