Not sure what to say?

My family is very sorry for the loss of your beloved mother. We remember her and her beloved husband, Leon, during the good years with Catholic War Veterans organization and all the activities in which we participated. She was a gracious, kind, and supportive member with a charming smile. We will miss her. May the Lord continue to bless you. We will pray for her.
