I'm sure the Lord was waiting with open arms for your mother. You were a good daughter and you will dearly miss her. Take solace that you were with her and know that she is looking down on you and blessing you. In our thoughts and prayers, Paula and Greg

Anna, I was saddened to bear about your Mom. I know you loved her very much by the way you spoke of her as well as your Dad, always in such high regard. May you and your family find comfort in knowing that she lived a long and very full life.

Sending sincere condolences to the loving family of Gina Iocco. Losing a loved one is difficult. May your hearts be filled with wonderful memories of the joyful times you've shared. May you also find strength in the comforting words found at 2 Corinthians 1:3,4.
We look forward to the time when God's Kingdom replaces funerals with happy reunions; a time when tears of joy will replace tears of sorrow and death will be no more (Isaiah 25:8).
