She loved the Lord.  Her faith is now sight. We will grieve the loss of her presence with us.  She is rejoicing, dancing, breathing new air with no difficulty. We thank the Lord for His love, grace and mercy that was poured out on Mom.  It is in Him that she has come to heaven, to that great cloud of witnesses, to Mt.
