    I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your Mother. She was my neighbor at Kolob for a some time. I really enjoyed her company, On her good days she would talk about her 9 children, and many grandchildren and great grandchildren. My thoughts and prayers are with you at this time of sorrow. Remember, she is not gone forever, and you will see her again. She will be watching out for you until that glorious day
