    It breaks my heart that my kids and I cannot be there because of a possible confrontation and conflict. I love Mom with all my heart and she has been such a wonderful part of my life for the last 12 years. Not being able to be there to pay my last respects and to support and comfort my husband, her son, JOE, as he buries his mother is something that is going to be hard to get over, if I ever am able to get over it. My heart is broken, from losing her, from watching her son grieve, and from the conflict that keeps me from attending her funeral services and which adds pain to my already suffering family.

    Rest in peace until Jesus comes again, Mom. I love you. ♡ KIMBERLIE ♡
