Marianne,

I am so sorry to hear that you have lost your mother. My thoughts and prayers are with you as you and your family remember her. May you find encouragement from these words, II Cor. 1:3-4 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort who comforts us in all our afflictions so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.

Blessings,

Jolynn Frey

Marianne,

I was deeply saddened by the news of your mother’s passing. We have shared memories of our dear mothers and their “spunk” while they were with us and I am sure we will continue to do so. She will always be with you in your heart.

My thoughts are with you and your family these days of transition. May you celebrate her life!

Sincerly
