  1. Monte and Fran,
    I’m sorry to hear of the passing of your mother, but what a blessed thing to know she’s in glory with our Savior.
    I have nothing but wonderful memories of your mother.
    I planned to come to the visitation to see you, but came down with a fever and am sick, so I won’t be able to come. I’m so sorry, but I hope Tom will be there.
    My prayers are with you as you sort through a lifetime of memories. I trust the Spirit will give you His comfort and strength.
