Condolences

  • My mom was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints her whole life with a great pioneer heritage. I am thankful for that and for her testimony of our Savior Jesus Christ. My mom worked for Mesa Pubic Schools as a cook in the cafeteria for many years. I was only 4 when she started there. She would take her own spices to work because the food needed to taste better. She was a wonderful cook and we all will miss the many things she made for us especially on all of the holidays. We would always gather at her home to celebrate them. I am thankful for the time these last few years that we cared for her. I know she is finally free from her pains here on earth and look forward to the day we will see her again.
