    Al, so sorry to hear of your Mom’s passing. You were truly blessed to have her these many years. My parents passed away at age 66, and Mom 71. They have been gone to their Heavenly home close to twenty five years and counting. Your Mom is at peace no more suffering nor pain. Walking those streets of gold, and seeing the face of Jesus. How awesome is that. My prayers go out to you, and knowing your parents are together once again how great that is. A Mother’s Love is forever and I am sure all of her children knows, that a piece of your heart went with her, the day God called her home. Be strong and confident that she is in a better place. Hugs from Tennessee. Love you.
