    I never got the chance to meet Mary but I feel as If knew her well from all the stories Scott shared with me. I continue to pray for you all and know that the Lord is with you all to comfort and give you the peace that only he can provide.
    ”“I am leaving you with a gift—peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give. So don’t be troubled or afraid.“
    ‭‭John‬ ‭14‬:‭27‬ ‭NLT‬‬
