An amazing woman, who loved her husband so perfectly, loved her daughters so beautifully, loved her sons-in-law like they were her own, and loved her grandchildren with the biggest heart. She was a woman who devoted her whole heart to living the gospel and serving others.
She was bod her sons like they were her own, how she loved her grandchildren with the biggest heart. A perfect example to me of how to live the gospel and trust in the Lord always. Grateful her suffering is done. Thinking of the reunion as she was welcomed by her parents, my dad's parents, my sweet husband and so many more. Seeing the smiles, the laughter, and maybe even a little dancing. You can putter away in heaven now mom.
