Our hearts are broken for your family, but we know she has seen Jesus’ face now and walking streets of gold. We know you are also celebrating her homecoming in Heaven. When I told mom, she said, Well she beat me to it!” How our moms loved serving the Lord together! We have such fond memories of her and childhood memories together. May God give you peace during your time of sorrow.
