    Dear Laura and Bruce, I visited your mom at South Hampton for the past few years bringing her Holy Communion. I enjoyed visiting her and sharing our faith. She always wanted to receive Holy Communion, even on days she could barely wake up. It was that important to her. She is an inspiration. And while I know you will miss her, I am also happy for her. I’m glad she’s been apart of my life. In life and death we belong to the Lord. With heartfelt sympathy and prayers. Sincerely, Jane
