    I’m sorry to hear about your mother’s passing. Losing a parent is hard… at any age. May you gain comfort and strength from your loving memories and the Holy Scriptures . John 5:28,29 shows that Jesus will resurrect our dead loved ones in the future just as he did in the past. I hope you find that comforting. My deep sympathies to your family.

    I extend my deepest sympathy to you and your family on your mother’s death. Your mother taught school with my mother and Mom thought the world of your mother. We were reading the Gainesville Sun and saw your mother’s obit in the paper. It brought back many fond memories! Please know your mother touched many lives during her time here and we share in your loss. Kind regards. Rick
