    My condolences to you all in the loss of your mother and wife. It has been a tough few years I am sure but she is in a much better place now. It is all your fond memories of her that will help you get through these next few days. I will keep you in my prayers!

    So sorry for your loss. Your mom was a very special lady who always had a smile on her face. Her passing will leave a huge void in the community of Kindred. Cling to the memories that you shared and she will never be far away. You will feel her presence with the warmth of the morning sun shining on your face, a breeze that comes out of absolutely nowhere, and the sound of laughter that will make you turn your head thinking that your mom is standing right behind you. Thoughts and prayers!
