Really sorry to hear you lost your Mom. The circumstances are very similar to those when we lost my Dad in 2012, so believe me, I understand what you’re feeling. I miss him every day, but I’m to the point the good stuff, the stuff that makes you smile, is what I remember. You’ll get there.

Prayers and sympathy for you and your family for the loss of your mother. Norma was very special to me and my Aunt Pauline James. Her help in caring for Frances Vance was invaluable. Norma was always so kind and considerate and compassionate in all that she did. I considered her as a friend and she wi be missed. I am praying for God’s grace and comfort for you and your family as you mourn her loss.
