    So sorry to hear of the loss of your dear loved one. I too have experienced that deep pain of loss. So, I look for ways to comfort others. I hope that you may find comfort in Job 14:14,15, which assures us that Almighty God has not only the power, but the desire to resurrect our dear loved ones.

    Jim, I am so sorry at your loss. Even though you’ve had your mom for a long time, it is never easy to say goodbye. May your sorrow soon be replaced by the best of memories. I am holding you in my heart.

    I did not know Mrs. Mosher personally, but she must have been an excellent musician and performer. Her son James is a marvelous musician, performer, and conductor. She must have been very kind and generous as well, because James is a most kind and generous colleague.

    Thank you to the family for sharing Jackie with Drury Place At Alvamar. She was and always will be a living inspiration to everyone that she has met. I always said that I couldn’t feel any closer to God than when I was with her. She will be missed, but what a legacy she has left. Love you Jackie!!

    To Paul Mosher and the Mosher Family,
    Sorry for the loss of your Mother. Enjoyed the times I would come over to your house when we were in high school.

    My prayers and condolence goes to the Mosher family. Hope all family members and friends find comfort in Jehovah Gods message found in John 5:28, 29. According to Jehovah’s promise, Mrs. Jacqueline, though sleeping in death, has the hope of the resurrection to enjoy life again on this same earth (Ecclesiastes 1:4; Psalms 104:5). Again please accept my condolence.
