Dear Paul, Daniel, Connie, Donna and Kathy:

I'm so sorry for the loss of your mother. Ann was one of the most wonderful and inspiring Christian women I've ever met and I know she is rejoicing today in heaven. She will always hold a very special place in my heart, just as all of you do.

Paul, bless your and your family...
I'd met your mom a few times, but didn't know here very well, but what I did know, I liked.
