    Kathy and Barbara, I am so sorry to hear about the death of your mother. It was such a pleasure to have known her for the years that I was at Buffalo Presbyterian Church. She always had a smile and was a loving and pleasant person to talk with. My prayers are that the family will experience God’s peace and His healing touch.
