It's appropriate that our Moms died within almost a week of each other since they lived so close to each other at The Heritage! I appreciated how you stopped in to visit with my mom occasionally, just to say hello. Praying for you Randy that you know the peace of God in her passing. Our Moms are in a far better place with Jesus!

So sorry for your loss. I know it has been a tough 7 months without actually spending time with her. My thoughts go out to you. Maybe she and mom (Marcie) will be visiting together again.
