To the Family ,
I would like to express how sorry to hear of your loss. I recently lost my father. The pain of losing a loved one is a pain that seemingly never goes away. However, the pain can lessen when we think of what God has promised to do for us.

What comfort does he provide us? First of all, at 1 Cor 15:26 it says: "The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death." So God views death as an enemy and will eventually remove death.

Secondly, Jesus gave us hope when at John 11:25 he said: "I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:" So there is a chance to see our loved ones again under better conditions.

This comfort from the Bible has helped me in dealing with the loss of my father and I hope it will help your family to some degree with your loss.

Annette, I don't think I ever had the pleasure of meeting your mom, but reading all this comments lets me know that she was apparently loved by many and would be someone I would love to have known. Hang on to all the sweet memories you have of her to share with Paisley when she is older. Please now that you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.

I am very saddened to hear of Bobby's passing! Worked with her at Southern Bell. Also worked with her niece, Debbie and recently met her sister Kathryn.
Bobby was one of my favorite people from Southern Bell! She would bake scrumptious birthday cakes for my family!
She always had a smile on her face and kind words for everyone! When I saw Debbie, would always ask about Bobby. Debbie would say she was doing well!
Bobby loved her family and often spoke fondly of each of them.
May your memories and knowing your mother's love sustain you during this sad time!
Blessings and prayers to each of you!!
