The single most common remark in response to her death was of her sweet spirit. Our mom was the definition of love.
1 Cor 13:4-7. Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil, but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
In Lieu of flowers, memorial contributions can be made to Elara Caring Hospice Foundation, Covenant House, or Christ Child House.
