    Lauria, Levoy, & Jill,
    Your mom was always a gracious, precious, loving lady. What a gift she always was, to not only her family, but to those of us blessed to have had her in our lives as well. May you all find comfort in God’s embrace as you remember her in your hearts, thoughts & conversation. Prayers for all of you as you miss her today & in the days to come. Love you all.
