    Mom, Aunt Pat, Aunt Jean,
    Our love goes out to you at this time as it is very sorrowful to lose your mother. The only comfort is knowing she is with her Lord. She also had a lot of people waiting, the ones that had gone before. Knowing this shall bring you peace in your heart as time goes on.
