Michael, Dawn, Danny, I am truly sorry for your loss. Your mom was a kind, funny woman. She surely loved you kids and her grandkids! I loved Katie for who she was. I am happy for her because she is finally at peace. You will all be in our prayers for God's comfort. Love to you.

The pain of losing someone you love can be overwhelming especially when it's someone as important as your mother. I cannot imagine that pain. May your family draw comfort as I have from knowing that our loving heavenly Father promises us that very soon all those in the 'memorial tombs' will hear the voice of his son Jesus and 'come out' by means of the resurrection. (John 5:28,29) What a wonderful day that will be!
