My prayers are with all the family. Your mom was indeed a special person. One of my fondest memories of her was when she would stop by my classroom at Trinity on a Wednesday. That is when the school had their Chapel services in the church. But she felt strongly to stop by my room and greet my students and myself first before heading to the church. She would also write me notes of encouragement in my teaching. That meant so much to me in my teaching ministry! She would remind me of funny stories my dad and her husband shared over the years. Your mom loved life, loved people, loved teaching, and loved her Lord. My family and I rejoice that she has received her crown of life with Jesus! To God Be The Glory for the best is yet to come!
God’s Peace be with you!

I'm so thankful Aunt Cass was at Caretel, even though it was such a short time. I had the opportunity to have a very special visit with her, something I will always cherish. I continue to pray each of you feel God's special peace in the days and weeks ahead. I love you all.
