    May God comfort your family at this time. She is with the Lord and other family members now. No more pain, sorrow. She loved every one that knew her.I was always impressed that she washed her husband's hair every week. She baked bread almost every week and sweets for church bazaars. The angels are probably lining up for some goodies. A wonderful caring woman.?
