Leanne I am so sorry to hear of your mom's passing. I met your mom while volunteering with Greg at Holy Family School. What a nice lady she was. I hope you find comfort in knowing that she is in Heaven with your dad. My prayers are with you and your family.

Another light has gone out in our family this week. But her light will burn twice as bright in heaven....where we will all meet again and celebrate eternity with Christ. Though we miss her now, we look forward to her new beginning and our reunion. Until then, rest in perfect peace Aunt Judy. Well well done. Love you forever.
