Rob, I'm so sorry for your loss. We know most of our lives that we're likely to lose our moms and we're still never ready. My heart grieves for you.

Heartfelt condolences to Aunt Lib's family. I pray God helps heal your hearts quickly, and comforts you in the weeks and months ahead. Aunt Lib was a wonderful woman. I stayed with her many times as a kid.. Dan, Greg, James, & myself. How she put up with us will always be a mystery. She was quite a role model and has left me with many wonderful memories. She was a loving and caring woman, and was always there for everyone. Her wonderful laugh and bubbly attitude will be a valued treasure in my heart forever.
