Dear Adam & George,
I was so deeply saddened to read of your wonderful mother's passing.
My mother Lorraine was born just fifteen days before your mother,
on April 15th, 1926. I lost her twenty one years ago. The day of her death will always be the saddest day of my life. Our mothers love us unconditionally from the moment we are born, and that unconditional love is forever. Soon you will see subtle signs that you mother is still near, watching over you and protecting you, just as she did during her journey here on earth.
It was a lifetime ago that little Ariel and Denise lived next door to me on 4th Street in Santa Monica. It was so good to see you Adam at Paul & Brian's concert in San Diego.
Your mother will live on forever in the hearts of all of those whose lives she touched, and in her brilliant body of work. She brought so much joy to generations of her devoted fans, including me. She was a star here on earth, and now she is one of the brightest stars in the night sky. I will look for her each night, and remember her, when I look up to Heaven.
My thoughts and my prayers are with you both, and with Ariel and with all of your family at this very sad time.
May all of the remaining days of your lives be filled with peace, happiness, good health, and so many blessings from above.
