Deepest condolences to you for your loss. It's comforting to know that God did not intend for us to experience sickness, suffering, and death, and it's reassuring to know that "From the power of the Grave [God] will redeem [us]; From death [He] will recover [us]." (Hosea 13:14)

Tom and famiy, I am saddened to learn of your mother's passing. I am pleased that you had the opportunity to visit with her prior to her passing. I'm sure, that if she was able to speak with you, that the final days you spent with her produced many recollections of memories of happier days. Please know that I will be thinking and praying for your family as you adjust to life without her. Her tribute will be the recollection of those happier times. I'm sorry that distance prevents me from paying tribute in person.
