Rest In Peace




My mother-in-law's name was Lillie.

     As of a little before 4 this morning, she is at peace. My husband is doing okay, but in that stunned place where you realize that your mom is gone. My father-in-law is very confused and we really aren't sure how he will get through this. Please keep him in your prayers.

There's one more star up in the sky tonight.
Even though it is far away,
