Dora, I pray that your heart is at peace, no mother could have asked for a more loving and caring daughter as you. 2 Corinthians 1:3-5

3: Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort,

4: who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God.

5: For just as we share abundantly in the sufferings of Christ, so also our comfort abounds through Christ. My prayers are with you and your family. Maria Shanklin and Eliza Moa
