Dear Sandra, I just saw your mothers obituary I found it completely by chance. I know it's sad to lose her. I didn't know that Barbara had passed away. Again, I offer my true condolences. Sincerely Debbie

Mama, I know you would have been pleased with your homegoing services. I miss you.

I am so sorry for your loss. Words that will bring you great comfort are those expressed in God's Word at John 5:28,29 and Revelation 21:4, where we learn that soon God is going to resurrect our loved ones now sleeping in death and that he will also rid the earth forever of the causes we now have for pain and suffering. (John 11:11-14) My sincere sympathy.
