    Dear Marcy, I am sorry to hear about your loss of your mother. I pray that the Lord will comfort, direct, and fill you with His peace as you adjust to this great loss. Hardly a day goes by that I don’t remember something that reminds me of Mama. People say that time heals, but really, God heals. I pray that He comforts your heart with His presence. Love, Patty
