Craig; My condolences to your Family. Your Mom will be sorely missed. May you turn to Almighty God for comfort and strength in this time of sadness, 2 Cor. 1:3, he truly is the God of all comfort. And he promises at Acts 24:15, there will bw a resurrection back to life, just as he let Jesus resurrect Lazarus. May you find comfort, hope and peace in his promise.

Elizabeth Ann "Betty" Furniss (nee' Shifflett) was my mother and my best friend. I thank God for blessing me with her for as long as he did.
During the last month of her life I'd called her literally every other day. Much to my surprise she called me on Christmas Day. I called her again on the 27th and basically thanked her for all she'd done for me in my life. I thanked her for being my mother and for being able to put up with a son like me. She told me that her TWO sons were the best there ever was and that we had never in anyway been a problem. That it was all part of growing up and learning.
