I am so sorry to hear about your Mom. I will never forget her. She has a special place in my heart and my memory. I remember picking cherries from the tree outside her kitchen door, and I remember her apple dumplings! But most of all, I remember how she always made me feel loved and welcome in her house. I will miss her. My prayers are with you all.

My thoughts are with you during this time of terrible loss. Your mother was one of the loveliest women I have know. I have missed her presence in my life over the past decade. She only showed me kindness and love in my lifetime and it was all my lifetime. My love and thoughts are with all of you now.

Please accept my sympathies. You’re Mother was always a role model for many years at the Altoona Bible Church. She was a woman that I knew and admired. She will always hold a special place in my memory of women who meant much to me in my life. My prayers are with you.
