Our mother, our matriarch, our rock has ascended to be with our Lord. She was a loving mother, wife, grandmother, and great-grandmother. We will miss her physical presence but her aura, her spirit, her soul will continue in those of us who mourn today but will forever hold her in our hearts. The great warmth of her love for family is the foundation for those of us that will always keep her in our thoughts.
