    My prayer is that God will comfort you and hold you in His amazing love in the loss of your Mom. I know that she and Lelo are walking the streets of gold and enjoying the presence of Christ as He comforts and sings over them. May His love guide and keep you all.

  4. May God comfort each of you as only He can. Susan’s mother kept referring to a verse in I Thess 4:13 prior to her move to Heaven. “Sorrow not as those who have no hope” is a part of that verse. We are so sorry we cannot be there Monday because of a doctor’s appointment, but rest assured we will be praying for you.
    Reid and Susan Nelson
