My heart is so heavy today. Judy had the best laugh . She is my sister in law and I will also cherish our great time we had as family. She loves my boys and I love her babies. She loved all of you so very much. She was so proud of each of you. You kids have a great mamma. She will surely be missed. Our heart aches from the loss of your life. But we have the opportunity to see her again kids . Love to all of you. Aunt Mary

I’m very sorry for your loss. Words cant describe how you're feeling, nor will they completely take the pain away. Here are some comforting words. No matter what God sees the pain you’re experiencing.

1 Peter 5:7
Throw all your anxiety on [God], because he cares for you.
