Dear Gina & family, I am so sorry of your Mom's passing. There is a unique sadness when we lose our Mother's. You were a part of her, and she a part of you. There is no replacement for her, so grieve as you should. Take joy and comfort knowing she is face to face with Jesus. Your memories and her spirit live forever.
