    Sarah – So very sorry to hear of your Mom’s passing. I missed seeing her along with you and Evan at SUMC these past few months. Hoping and praying that you can find comfort and strength in the fact that she is no longer suffering and that she is currently in Paradise sitting at the feet of Jesus. Please let me know if there is anything that I can help you with concerning probate or settling the estate. Mark

    I hadn’t checked my email all week, and was shocked to see the notice about your mother. I know she will be missed terribly.

    Sarah and Evan,
    So sorry for the loss of mom. God gave your mom a special gift of loving and caring for people. Mary placed this gift in her heart and then passed the blessing on. When she visited people from our Church, she would built a loving relationship with them. Every time visited, she brighten their day. We should all learn from her example. The Church and I will miss her.
