So sorry to hear of the passing of your mother. She lived a good and long life and was ready to see Jesus. You can take comfort in knowing that she is with Jesus and you will see he again if your hearts belong to Jesus. May you remember the good memories.

Ray and Edna leave very fond memories for me and my family. As a young family they allowed us to play many ball games in their meticulously mowed backyard, They were such good, gracious, caring neighbors.
Condolences from my family to yours as you grieve the loss of your mother.
