Lisa, my sincere sympathy to you and your family. Thinking of you
Lisa ~ I am so sorry for your loss. After seeing you days before your Mom's passing I prayed for her so hard as I know how tough it is to lose a parent. Even though we all know its inevitable and they've lived a good life, we are never ready to say good-bye to a parent. They are the foundation of who we are. I truly believe even though they are physically gone, they are still walking beside us and guiding us. I hope you find peace knowing that she is once again reunited with your father and the strength to move through your grieving. Julie Brockman
Lisa my thoughts and prayers are w you. I know mother’s play a significant place in our heart’s and live’s. That is why God chose them to be our mother’s. If you ever would like to reminisce I will be here for you 25/8. I hope you know the gift you have always been to anyone who is blessed to cross paths w you. Probably similar characteristics you attained from your mother. Happy you have been able to be quite close geographically, physically, and emotionally. Take Care. God Bless and May the peace of Christ be with you now and forever. Meg, Amanda ( Mumm), and Marilyn ( and Meryl Mumm).
