    So sorry to hear of your Mother's passing; however, I can see the reunion now. Hearts are heavy here on earth but "Look what's happening in heaven, A cheer went up as she walked through the gate; Why she's as young and beautiful as a babe..." and my Mother, Mary B and Miss Dot are on another New Year's trip. The bittersweet feelings for our Mothers but the assurance of eternal life brings such warmth to our hearts. May God wrap his loving arms around you and give your family peace. My sincere sympathy to you.
