    I did not personally know Mrs. Wilson however I would like to offer my condolences for your families loss. I would like to share with you a comforting scripture found in the Bible if I may. It is at 2 Corinthians 1:2,3- May you have undeserved kindness and peace from God our Father and The Lord Jesus Christ. Praised be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort.
    My hope is that this scripture may bring you comfort.
    Sincerely, Suzie Robertson

    I am so sorry for your loss. It is my heartfelt prayer that God give you peace in your quiet moments and comfort to replace your grief. Teresa, I know it’s hard to cope with the passing of your mother and the pain seems to be unbearable but please remember you are not alone, for Psalms 46:1 promises, “God is our refuge and strength. A help that is readily found in times of distress.” Pray to Him for strength. Weep to Him when there are no words. May God’s promise that one day you will see your mother again, give you hope and bring you peace for, Isaiah 26:19 promises, “Your Dead Ones Will Live. Awake and cry out joyfully, You Residents In The Dust!…” With deepest sympathy.
