Jim and siblings, Jose and Scott,
So sorry for your loss and pray for God to comfort you through this time of mourning!
Losing a Mom has got to be one of the toughest days we go through during this time of our life! A Mom is one who nurtured us when we were young, and whom we nurtured when she was old. Thank you Jim for being such a part of her life! God’s love fill your hearts with memories! Irene and family
