To our beautiful mother. She was an angel her on Earth and now she is an official one in heaven. She loved her kids and her grandkids and great-grandkids with all her heart. She never had an unkind word for anyone. Life was not easy for a woman in the ’60s and ’70s raising three children alone. She would always say, “but by the Grace of God.” She knew her circumstances could be worse but with God’s Grace and the love of her mother, she made a beautiful life. She was always selfless, always kind, and always walked by Faith. We love you, Mother. Hug our babies in Heaven who were there to greet you. We miss you already. Rest in Peace, “28Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30
