May Jehovah comfort all of you dear loved ones. We love you all and you are in our prayers and thoughts. Your mom was an exceptional woman with such loving qualities that we all want to imitate. Very kind, selfless and a true Servant of Jehovah. We felt we knew her for many years because of her easiness of being around her a beautiful lady inside and out. We love you all.
