  1. Thank you all for you’re wonderful comments and memories.

    Momma still can’t except your gone. I continue to read all these kind words over and over but my heart can’t except your gone. I pray that I find peace very soon. We miss you dearly and wasn’t prepared for what occurred. I pray that my faith in God can endure this. I’m wavering if God exists. Why would he leave so many of us suffering. I love you Mom and wishing we had one more day.

You all are in my prayers during this time and always. She will always be missed and loved and it is sad to have to be apart, for a time.
