Dear Glenda I'm so sorry to read about your Mother, I knew nothing about her even being sick. I have been in Florida for 5 months as we are snowbirds. I wish I could be there with you but know that my prayers and thoughts are with you all. I loved your Mom very much, I know she is enjoying Heaven with her LORD and then her loved ones. I know Mother will be very glad to see her. I love you and the family. Will try my best to see you when I return home in April.
