Your mom was so nice and kind. I always enjoyed her visits to my store for Christmas. You have my deepest sympathy.

I send my thoughts and prayers to the spouse, daughter, family and loved ones of Cora. I never met her but knew her husband, H. L . Mathias. He is a committed Christian and was a great friend in high school. He played a key role in my discipleship as a follower of Jesus. Praying comfort, strength, and great peace for him and his daughter and the family. Hope to see you soon, H. L .
