CandleMom, you always had that spit fire in you with that spontaneous laugh that I will always hold in my heart throughout my life.
Love you mom!

Sharon Harvey on Nov 25, 2017

My sincere condolences to family and friends. May you find comfort in your loving memories, and in God's promise to soon "swallow up death forever" and "wipe away the tears from all faces." (Isaiah 25;8) Rev 21:4  "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away." With deepest sympathy and heartfelt prayers.
