Evie and family. My heartfelt sympathy at the loss of your Mom Janice. I feel like I knew your Mom so well Evie, just by listening to you speak of her. Your mom did a great job raising her children, and this is evident Evie by all the loving care you have for your Mom and your family, and to everyone you come in contact with. Sending prayers and loving thoughts your way. She is with The Lord Jesus now, and is in perfect peace. The peace of Jesus Christ. May God bless you all, Love Meg Stockwell
