To Beverly and the entire family: My family and I would like to send our sincere condolences in the loss of your Mother. We pray that God will give you the strength to endure during this difficult time. We, too recently lost our Mother, and found that God was ever present. Although we miss her dearly, we find comfort in knowing she is with the Lord. Remember: Weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning. We love you.
