My thoughts and prayers are with you at this time of loss. Your mama was a special lady. Know that she is doing, what she couldn't do before. She most likely is dancing with your dad before the lord. Because, she is home. No more pain and no more worry. Yes, she will be missed, but we miss those we love. They are always in our hearts and memories.  God be with you all.
