Kelli and family: Please know you along with your mom have been in our thoughts and prayers. I pray that God comforts you and consoules you in this time of need. Rest assure that your mother is now in the arms of our Lord Jesus Christ, while I am sure that void in your heart is very real right now, God in his Devine and merciful way will heal that void the way only he can do. Your mom should be very proud, because in you (and I’m sure your sisters too) you radiate nothing but love for many.

We were so sorry to hear about the loss of Mary Jo. She fought the good fight trying to remain here for her girls & grandchildren but lost the earthly battle-but Heaven is hers now and she is pain free and whole. Our hearts go out to you all and pray the Lord’s healing balm for your hurting hearts.
