    I know you will miss your mother dearly. What a gracious lady! She was always so kind to me growing up and I love her as well as all of you. I have sweet memories of her. May you feel her close to you in the next few days as well as in the future. It was so hard on her to lose Brent, I can imagine how happy she is to be reunited with him and Jay, but hard to leave all of you too. I know she will be near… May you have comfort and peace as you go forward with faith as she would want you to. Our love, Ivan and Gaylen
