I am so sorry for your loss. At this difficult time please remember the Bible's promise at Acts 24:15, "There is going to be a resurrection." May the God of all comfort, comfort you in all your trials. - 2 Corinthians 1:3,4

I worked with your mom in the seventies at the nursing home in Tompkinsville. Your dad also built our house. I have been writing and receiving notes from her. I just learned of your loss. She was always a good friend.
