We Love you Mom, we will miss your smile, your laugh and sarcasm the most. You were always giving us a hard time for your own amusement and we would give so much to have it back. You made sure you raised us girls tough for a reason and now we will be strong for you and make you proud.
“Lo! I tell you a mystery. We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we shall be changed.”
1 Corinthians 15:51-52
