  • Jaime, I am sorry to hear of your mother’s passing. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this very difficult time.

  • Jaime, I don’t know you, but I did know your mom.
    Your mom and I went to school together in elementary and middle school.
    She was very sweet always had a smile. I visit the home too and knew her parent.
    In your time of sorrow, know that Jesus is there, He will hold you in arms and wipe away the tears.
    Jesus feels the grief you feel. Just give to Him your broken heart.
    For Jesus in time, will heal.
