  1. Susan, I am so sorry for the lost that you feel since your mother went to be with God. But I do rejoice with you for her love of God. Prayers for comfort for you and the family

  2. Lib was my aunt, in fact I was the ring bearer at her wedding. She was one of the very nicest people I have ever met. And while she was kind of quiet, her sense of humor was absolutely wickedly funny. The world is a worse place without Lib Rogers in it. Godspeed.

  3. Your loss is Heavens gain and she is with the ones she loved.We all look for the day when we shall be together again.I regret that I never met this very special lady but I did know her thru her special son Phil.He loved his Mother and you could see her character in him.My heart goes out to all her family and know that God welcomed her into her heavenly home where she is at peace.God bless.
