I am so saddened by Jewell's passing. She was always a lot of fun anytime we got together. Sadly we lost touch with each other. Prayers for comfort to her entire family. Earth's loss is Heavens gain. RIP Jewell.

Sorry to hear of the lost of Jewell. We only met her a few times but she was a very nice lady. Mothers are so precious and hard to lose. We are sure she will be sorely missed. Prayers.

What a beautiful smile your mom had. I am very sorry to read of your loss. With her accomplishments, her love and joys, she was an amazing woman. I won't pretend to know what you're going through, but what has helped me deal with the loss of those I love, is turning to the Scriptures, something that has been a real source of comfort. One Scripture that gives me hope is, John 11:25, which says, "Jesus said to her: “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who exercises faith in me, even though he dies, will come to life." I hope that this verse will also comfort you, and I hope you and your family can get through this difficult time. Please accept my condolences for the loss of your beloved mother, grandma and friend. Sincerely, Meryl, -
