My heart is saddened to hear of your mum’s passing; but, I’m glad and grateful that she is now with Jesus, and with your dad, and all the rest of her loved ones who have gone before her.

May God’s peace and blessings be yours during this most tender season; and, may He give you many lovely memories so that you may always have roses in December.

Ever hoping . . .

Always in Jesus,
