Virginia JarvisI’m sorry to hear of your dear Mother’s passing. I fondly remember her bringing beautiful gifts and thoughtful cards when my daughter, Jodi, was having chemo treatments in London hospital, years ago. She consistently prayed and showed a genuine interest in her salvation and in the years that followed, Eileen always asked about her. A common bond developed because my Jodi wore a prosthetic leg from the age of 13. I have never met a lady with such a gentle and kind spirit, so like the Lord Jesus. We will miss her and are so happy we will meet her in Heaven one day. Love to all. Virginia Jarvis
