I am sorry for your loss. May your family receive an abundance of comfort from God and be sheltered and guided as you navigate through this difficult time. His comfort is so powerful that we are able to be strengthened by it and effectively comfort others based on the care and concern we bountifully receive. (2 Corinthians 1:3-5)

You must be Betty's son... Mum often spoke of her. You know our mothers played Scrabble together for many years. Mum continued to play and WIN up to a few days before her death.
