Just wanted to tell you how sorry I am at the loss of your mother. She may be gone but not forgotten and held in your hearts forever. I hope at this sad time that you will all remember the many good things you shared with her and find comfort in celebrating her life here on earth. Now, a new life has begun! A life you may not share in now but will some day. Take comfort in knowing she is free of all those things that may have constrained her here on earth. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

God Bless you.
