I am sorry to hear of your mother's passing. I can only imagine how difficult this has been, and my heart goes out to you and the family. Know that you have many, many friends who love and care about you.
I know your heart is feeling heavy. My hope and prayer for all of you is that each day your hearts will feel lighter and lighter from the loss you are feeling, until one day only sweet memories remain to comfort you. I know for certain that we never lose the people we love, even to death. They continue to participate in every act, thought and decision we make. Their love leaves an indelible imprint in our memories. We find comfort in knowing that our lives have been enriched by having shared their love.
Know that my thoughts, love, prayers and hugs are with you. Please be gentle with yourself.
