My deepest sympathy on the death of your mother and grandmother. Praying that you feel God's strength and peace in your hearts.

I'm so sorry but I won't be able to attend the service as I will be out of town.

Susan and Jann,

I worked with your mother for several years at the hospital. She was always very kind and caring and had a smile on her face. She was a joy to work with. Her family was the light of her life!

So sorry for you're loss. She was one of my favorite Aunts. Really wanted to attend the funeral, but the weather is not cooperating.
