Michelle, thanks for allowing me to get to know your mom. There was an effervescence to her spirit that I encountered each time I interacted with her. I rejoice that her journey is now completed and she is totally free. I am praying for healthy grieving for you as you process this loss and recall so many good memories. Big hug. Shirley Montgomery
