    It's been a year today since Mom got her place in God's house. To say that life has changed since Mom passed away is an understatement but the only constant thing in life is change. I thank God for taking Mom to Heaven - I know she is healthy and happy beyond all comprehension. There's a hole in our family but there is more love and gratitude for the life of Mom in our hearts - she is worth every tear that I shed for her. Thanks and blessings to all who wrote such nice things about Mom and for sending prayers and comfort to us during this time of adjustment. We will see all of our loved ones in Heaven and what a family reunion that will be!

    I am sorry for your loss. I just can't believe Vivian has passed away. She was like a second mother to me. We had a lot of great times at Biltmore Tool. She will always hold a special place in my heart and life. I loved her very much.
