Barb: So sorry to hear of your mother passing, you and you family are in our prayers.
I thought of your mother every time I read the church newsletter and saw that she was one of the “shut-ins”. I never knew your mother well only seeing her in church. She always had a sweet smile and was a very faithful member of the church.
she had a long life and I hope it was a happy one.
My deepest sympathy for you and your family.
