  6. To my dear friends,

    I will be praying with you this morning in celebration of the life of a wonderful, giving woman. The death of a parent is difficult to cope with, but hopefully, you will be able to remember and smile upon the very good times.

    God Bless and take care of each and everyone of your families.
