    Millie & family, I am so sorry for your loss. Your mother had to be a special person to have such a wonderful daughter. Thinking of you and praying that God will comfort you and your family during this time.

    Our hearts go out to you, Millie, and to your family. Your mother was a remarkable woman and loved by many for her lifetime of service to others. But if she had accomplished nothing more than the way she raised her very special daughter, that alone would assure a star in her crown. May you find peace and comfort and know that your never-failing care was a great blessing to her.

    My condolences to Sarah and the whole family over Sandy's passing. She helped many people through Red Cross, VFW Ladies Auxiliary, etc. and will be missed. I also deeply appreciated her kindness to my Beloved Mother, Louise Webb (deceased). I feel at peace knowing both great ladies are in God's care now, free of pain, and full of joy in His presence.
