Your mother was one of the warmest and most caring people I have had the pleasure of knowing. She was the type of person who inspired integrity in those around her; she encouraged others to be the best people they could be. I'm praying that God grants you strength at this time, and that He gives you comfort knowing she is with Him for she was a faithful servant. May the Good Shepherd bless and keep you and give you peace.
