    Donna, please know that we are praying for your healing during this very difficult time. I know you have peace and have rejoiced knowing your mother is now fully healed. But there will be times of sorrow for your loss. When you are sorrowful look again in your heart. “The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched – they must be felt with the heart.” – Helen Keller There you will be able to embrace the memories that will sustain you through the moments of sorrow.
