  • Rochelle, your mother was a special lady, full of charm and charisma. I remember how she would always be one of the regulars who would volunteer on field trips when we were in elementary school as well as her faithful involvement in helping develop young girls in the Girl Scouts programs.

    Remember the good times, they will help you through the healing process of thinking about her in the days that lie ahead. That special place in your heart will always be there for each of you to instill those precious memories of the days gone by. May God send His comfort your way in the days ahead.
