Family and Friends were very important to Mom, and that was evident by the exuberant greetings she gave to all who came to see her in these last few weeks and days.
Mom knew everyone that visited and requested their hugs! One thing she certainly remembered was how to pray to her God. She would often do that...with her family, friends and the medical staff that were helping her.
She remembered that God loved her, Jesus Christ had saved her, the Holy Spirit was with her and that her family loved her very much. Remembering these things, she said, gave her peace in her spirit and all the comfort she needed! She wanted all to know that no one needs to fear the future because Jesus Christ Lives today and loves each one! Funeral
