Brenda, Kathy, and Debbie,

May God and His angels help you through this trying time. I know how hard it has been to see your Mom’s condition deteriorate over the years, but you can take confort now in knowing she is with Jesus and she is whole again. She was a very special person and came from a good family that loved her unconditionally. She was so proud of her children and grandkids. May all of you feel God’s love and peace.

Love you,

Shirley B. Smith
