I am so sorry for the loss of your mom.
She was a big part of my life when I was younger.
Your mom was strong and fierce.
She taught me a lot back then.
I love her very much, and always will.
Please try and take comfort she is at peace.
I love the three of you.
Have since the day you were born.
And always will.
Your cousin Dian.
