Please accept my deepest sympathy for I too know the pain of losing someone as special as a mom. May your family find comfort as I have in knowing that our loving heavenly Father promises us that very soon he will 'swallow up death forever, and certainly wipe the tears from all faces.' (Isaiah 25:8) What a wonderful day that will be!

I once read a quote which I would like to share:
"The purpose of our lives does not lie in the brief span of time between our birth and our death, Heaven is our Destination! May you all be comforted by all the fine memories Sophie left you with. Love Hollie & Jan
