    My heart is saddened by the loss of your mom. I know how hard it is to lose a loved one, but cannot imagine the pain of losing a mom! Prayers are with you to help you heal. The pain eases, but the loss will always be with you. She was a special lady and you are blessed for having her in your life. Peace be with you and your family.

    Your mom was always such a hard working farm lady. The picture of motherhood and hard work on the farm teaching her daughters to do the same. She put meals on the table , made school clothes and planted a yearly garden to feed the family. She also welcomed me to her home many nights. As a child I was never afraid to come to the table to eat with family , sleep a night or listen to her talk to her girls. She was unassuming, modest and I never heard or saw her judge a soul. She has a high place in His kingdom.
