“You are all blessed by having a wonderful mother such as my Aunt Edith. I sure want to watch the streaming, hoping I can get it. That would be a great gift from her. I was touched deeply when I received a letter from her on the day after her stroke. I was mentally looking toward her next birthday. God bless her with #96 in heaven with her two sisters.
Thinking of you with Love and prayers.
May you all be at peace now knowing she is in heaven with dad.”
