Peggy, I’m so sorry for your loss. I loved your mom and dad and appreciated all the encouragement they gave me and all the great work they did in the prison ministry. I know they are happy to be reunited at God’s throne and are enjoying a great reward. (BTW I hope God had a pie waiting for your mom as she passed out of this life and into her new life of freedom and joy!)
