Debbie and Cory,
We are so sorry that we cannot be with you today to share in the home going service for your mother. But our thoughts and prayers are with you and the entire family. This time of year is a joyous time in spite of the sadness, but it allows us to reflect on the memories of our loved ones and to be so thankful for having them in our lives for such a long time.  Remember that God is carrying you now and He will not let you fall.  We are praying for Ervin and his words that they may bring comfort to each of you this day and for the days to come. God bless you all and we love you very much.
