    So sorry for another loss Trudie. I can only assume God had a good reason for all of this to happen so quickly. I always have great memorys of your mom of how hard she worked from the farming days and the last few years. Your mom is at a well deserved rest and is rejoicing now. Your family in heaven is at peace now. Eddie
