  1. Our hearts go out to your family. We are connected because Jana Savage Bell served a mission in Canada in 1978 and was in the Kingston Ward when I was baptized.
    I have met Monica and have been praying for Laura and all of you in the past few weeks. I live about 30 miles from where Monica is currently serving and will do my best to help if she thinks I can give her comfort. Please let me know of anything I can do for her.

  3. I feel horrible for not checking this blog more regularly and am so sorry to hear she passed away! My apologies! I hope you as a family can use this time to hold onto the memories of your mom and remember the many, many happy times you've had with her. May peace be with each of you!
