Dear Janice, John and Family, Please know that I am keeping you all in my thoughts and prayers as you go through this difficult time. I do know the hurt of losing a Mom. This is a loss that never goes away but the Lord replaces the hurt, over time, with His love and grace and precious memories. Lean on His strength and those around you. Take care. God Bless.
