I met your mom on a number of occasions. Her love for Christ was abundant. I will always remember the conversations we had about our faith and she always asked about my little boy. She was such a sweet lady and I am thankful to have met her and know the wonderful family that she leaves behind. There are no words to express my sympathy but take comfort to know that she is with Jesus. With love, Nikki
