I can imagine the loss. The obituary pants a beating picture and knowing Lydia and Shanna, her love must have been powerful and freeing. I know the thick heartache that comes with losing a mother and my thoughts and positive prayers are held and sent to the entire family. Sometimes families struggle and wonder about when the matriarch passes. If it’s necessary, don’t get comfortable with it. Family, as I sure you know, is important and a blessing. Stay loving and may God’s Peace be with you always. Sincerely…
