    Judy and family, I’m so sorry for your loss and it is a great loss indeed. You know how I adored your mother. I haven’t seen both of you for many years, but was so glad to catch up with you on Facebook and hear of how your mother was doing. She was a dear sweet angel. Please know that my prayers are with you and your family in this sad time. I know how hard it is to lose a beloved parent, but we also know that she is safely in the arms of our Savior and for that we rejoice.
