    Kate, I only met your mom a couple of times but she was a very sweet person. I am so sorry for your loss. Losing a mom is very hard. She will be in my prayers, as will your family.

    JoDell you had so many gifts. You always had the most beautiful hair and a beautiful voice. You did not notice faults in others. You had quick laughter and kind words. I could call and it was like we had talked just yesterday. I am sorry I was not better at keeping in touch. I Remember how happy you were when you met Bill. Walking on air. Your marriage and family speak volumes on your love of life and family. Knowing you was a privilege and an honor. See you again.

    Your tribute to JoDell shows the deep love she had for friends, especially her family. And didn’t she LOVE babies ? Thinking of and praying as you try to accept this new way of life without her.  May the Lord comfort you through His merciful grace.
