May you cherish the memories as you lay your mother's earthly remains to rest. I remember her as being one "classy" lady, whether dressed up or dressed for everyday. Dennis had told me a while back that mom would even make sure he knew how to vote. It is my prayer that God will fill the emptiness of "mom's" presence with His never-ending love.
