    There are no words that expresses the lost of a mother but remember the memories of the times you spent with your mom. She was like a sister to my mom, Bea. And like an aunt to us. She always made us laugh. I know my mom is glad to have her with her. My condolences to you all during this time of bereavement. Lean on Jesus for strength to get you through!
