Robbie, your mom was a beautiful lady. I only met her after arthritis had racked her, but that could not hide the beautiful spirit that she had. All who knew her will certainly miss her but all can be comforted that she is now at home. The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and selfcontrol. Galations 5:22
