Greg and Family, My thoughts are with you as you grieve the absence of you Mom. The tide recedes but leaves behind bright seashells on the sand, the sun goes down, but gentle warmth still lingers on the land, the music stops, and yet it echoes on in sweet refrains.... For every joy that passes something beautiful remains. Just remember to let your Mom dance in the shadows of your heart and she will always be with you.
