From one grieving mother to another, my prayers go up for you and the family. I was in your place six months ago. Your son and my son were friends and colleagues in the music business. God is the only one who knows best and I pray that you trust in Him and cast every burden and heartache to Him. He will sustain and keep you. If you ever need or want to talk to me, please contact me at any time.

Much peace and love
