    I was so sad to read this morning about your mama’s passing, and I know you will all miss her, but I know, too, how very happy she is to be reunited with your daddy and how happy he is too!! I hope that in time the sadness and heartache you’re all feeling now will be replaced with many, many happy memories of all the good times you enjoyed with them. God’s peace to you all.
