Dearest Roger and Junior,
Though I did not know Hazel well, she left quite an impression. Knowing how close you were, I am certain that her passing must be extremely difficult.
I hope that soon the sadness and pain that you now feel will be replaced with warm, comforting memories of the happy times that you spent together. The beauty in death, is that the memories that we create in life live on in our hearts forever.
I know how dear your mother was to your heart and hope you can find comfort in knowing that she can now rest in peace, free of all suffering.
Daniel - I'm sorry to hear about your loss. But I am sure that your Love for your Mom, and hers for you will be forever present.
Dear Roger, please accept my deepest sympathy on your beloved Mom's death. Know that you are in my heart and in my prayers at this difficult time.

It is with sadness that I share with you, Roger, the loss of your mother. However I have happily shared her company at Thanksgiving dinners and at other times. You have been a dutiful son and you will be blessed as you have been a blessing to Hazel. She was a wonderful woman. May the God of all comfort be with you and your entire family.
Sincerely, Carole Clyne.
Keep strong and know you were the best of sons to your dear mother.
"When we look deeply at things, we see that this idea about birth and death is mistaken..... No phenomenon whatsoever can come into existence out of nothing, and no phenomenon which exists can become nothing. Things are ceaselessly transforming. The cloud does not die; it only becomes rain. The rain is not born; it is only the transformation and continuation of the cloud. Leaves, a pair of shoes, joy and sorrox, all conform to this principle of no-birth and no-death. To think that after death we continue to exist without change is called the ´view of permanence´. Reality transcends both permanence and annihilation."
"The five elements which combine together to become the thing we call self: the body, feelings, perceptions, mental factors, and consciousness..... All five elements are constantly transforming. They are never born and never die." My condolences and affection as you absorb this experience of loss ...zandra
Dear Roger, I have fond memories of sitting with your mom Hazel,talking and laughing about some deep issue regarding the human condition. She was a wonderful conversationalist! Usually at a family function when we both needed a break from all the excitement we would find each other and share our ideas. I am so sorry that she is now out of our world but happy that she is pain Free and at home with her Lord. Grateful for her life and share your loss!
Love you lots my dear brother! May you sense the comfort of those everlasting arms.
Remember me when I am gone away,
Gone far away into the silent land;
When you can no more hold me by the hand,
Nor I half turn to go yet turning stay.
Remember me when no more day by day
You tell me of our future that you plann'd:
Only remember me; you understand
It will be late to counsel then or pray.
Yet if you should forget me for a while
And afterwards remember, do not grieve:
For if the darkness and corruption leave
A vestige of the thoughts that once I had,
Better by far you should forget and smile
Than that you should remember and be sad.
