Siegfried, I was trying to think of words that would comfort you, but I really don't think there are any. However, you will gain strength and peace from your family and friends who love you and loved your mother. Please know that I am thinking about you at this difficult time in your life. God Bless you.

This breaks our hearts.Besides doing sewing for me (she even made me a denim coat one year) we became good friends.She was as kind a lady as you will ever know.She could sew anything and we had good times talking about the wedding gowns, bridesmaid gowns.Anything you wanted she could do.She will be greatly missed by all her friends and family.She is now flying high above the clouds with Jesus and praising our God. R.I.P.my good friend.
