Bev, I was heartbroken to hear that your mom made her transition and wanted you to know that Jesus and the Holy Spirit will be your Comforter and Healer of your pain at this time, so lean on them both for they will never leave you or forsake you.
I am certain that your mom was a very wonderful precious person and that she will be forever missed but just remember to cherish the memories.
Sincere Condolences,
Bev and Jon Hawkins

Beverly, Yvette and Lacie, I am so sorry for your loss. But this I do know, " t is better to believe that to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord." I am standing waiting for you all. How may I be of support and service to you all at this time?
