Dear Debbie and family,
I just heard about your mom and I wanted to let you know how very sorryI was to hear of her passing.  I know how very much she love all of you and how very . proud she was of your girls and all they accomplished.  You all made her and Gene' s life rich and full sharing in all your family did.  Just mentioning you name brought a smile as wide as the Grand Canyon to her face and the love and trust you all shared made her eyes sparkle.  am so glad that she was with you and the family during her last month's.  I truly know how much you will miss hearing her voice and talking with her about that great grandparent.  She is now well and strong again and it brings a smile to my heart thinking about the joyous reunion with her beloved Gene and Mike and the rest of your loving family who have gone to be with God.  There is a glorious grand party going on in heaven right now and all of their love and eternal care are there for you, Mike, the girls and the rest of the Brown clan.  Please allow God to help bear your sorrow and tears and let him heal your hearts with his mercy, grace and love.  He will give you the peace and hope you need for the days ahead.  God Bless and keep you all.  
Love, Rev. Bert
