    THis is a beautiful picture of your mom, Doris, and is much the way I like to remember her….I have so many lovely memories, and I loved her. She was a wonderful mother to her children, and she embraced all of the “extended” family her children added, either through marriage, friendship or even we “outlaw” siblings of her in-law sons and daughters! God blessed you, Doris, and I know that you and He are having wonderful conversations and that you are sharing with him in person now, that beautiful smile and loving heart! Until we meet again, Karen. PS, please say hi to Mom for me? Thanks!

    So sorry to hear of your loss. Revelation 21 : 4 gives us hope for a better future. It says, ” and he will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be no more. Neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away. “

    “God is our refuge and strength; a help that is readily found in times of distress.” (Psalms 46:1) My deepest condolences to the family on the loss of your loved one. And may the above words give you some comfort at this difficult time.
