I am so sorry to hear of your loss. It was difficult for me when my dad passed, but I can't imagine what it was like for you and the family to not even be able to be with her during this difficult time. God Bless and comfort you all.

It is with great sadness to hear of the passing of this gentle, sweet lady. She came into our office where her daughter Sandy worked and always had a smile on her face.
I know the past couple years have been tough ones for her and her family. It’s not easy to watch the one you have loved all your life, become someone unfamiliar.
Soar high, sweet lady, as you enter into God’s Kingdom.
Prayers for the entire family. May you feel God’s loving arms around you during these difficult days ahead.
