Dear Jeff and Gina,

A Mothers love is a very special love, only a Mom at times could comfort her children in a way that was instinctively understood by a son when he received that loving care and understanding. A very pure love, one that I know you will miss. But rest assured she heard the words , "Good Job faithful servant" as she entered heaven and was met by another Mother, Her name is Mary. Your Mom and the Blessed Mother are having wonderful conversations about her life and you, as your Mom gave you your life.
You will see her again, remember her Love. May you find peace in the coming days. All my Love, Mike Melton
