    So sorry to hear of your loss but she obviously lived a full life. I lost my mother this time last year as well but they are both in God’s gentle hands now. We pray for you and your family that this time of reflection helps you see the beauty, love and joy a mother brings to our lives and how blessed we are to have had them in our lives.
    May peace be with you all.
