    Mom, having meant so much, to so many, for so long, now comfortable in the Lord’s Hands, may you rest in the quite peace, and solitude, you so richly deserve. May your perpetual light shine brightest, forever lighting the way Home, for those left behind. Missing you,forever in my heart, I love you. Jim…
