Your mom must have been a hard working woman. I am so sorry for your loss. I know you will miss her. God's word, the Bible holds forth the hope off receiving back our loved ones by means of a resurrection. John 5:28, 29 tells us that Jesus will call and all those in the tombs will wake up. Then in Revelation 21:1-4 it describes the wonderful world waiting for them and their families. There is much more at JW. ORG. i hope this helps some. Steve
