Thinking of you and your family today Francis. So sorry for the sorrow your family are enduring. I know the pain you were suffering for months, now you are pain free. Becky you gave her wonderful care and love. Phyllis, even tho I'm hundred of miles away, wish I was there for you, I'm always here and sending love. You were there by your mother's side. You are a good daughter. Blessings and prayers.

I’m so sorry for your loss. Death stings very much. It’s one of the hardest thing to cope with. May the “God of all comfort” gives you strength and peace of mind in this time of difficulties. - 2 Corinthians 1:3,4.
