    This message is for Lori. Your mother will always be in your thoughts and in your heart. My prayers are with you always. I just lost my mother August 27th. I always will remember the day that you brought Elizabeth your mother to my home to meet my mother. They became instant friends. Your mother was four years older than my mother. And they had so much in common. All of their brothers and sisters passed away before they did. They were both the surviving siblings. Your mother made a wonderful impression on me when I met her. The minute she came into my home she introduced herself as Elizabeth. She just was so gracious and so sweet. Just remember that I’m very upset that your mother’s gone. But I know that she’s in a better place. She’s not suffering her body has been restored to its normal State. She is with our Savior Jesus Christ. The angels are singing. we’re not only celebrating Our Saviors birth but we’re celebrating your mother’s rebirth. God bless
