I want to offer my sympathy to the family for the loss of your mother. Julia was a good friend when she was living at Langman Apartments. I really liked talking to her, we had some of the same problems and missed her when she left.

Mom loved her whole family and friends. She is with all of those who went before her now and waiting until we all join them when it is our time. I know they are all rejoicing and having a wonderful reunion together. Thank you to all who left messages and everyone who came to the visitation and funeral. Her whole family appreciated it. We all loved her and will miss her terribly, but know she is with God now.
