To Christine & family with heartfelt condolences:

I am sorry for your loss, Christine. I am sure your mother was a wonderful & caring person, and it goes to show because you are caring also. You are a caring and helpful nurse and you have a nurturing spirit. I want to thank you for all you've done, even for me, as a coworker. I wish I could've been there to comfort you and to meet your family but because of this virus situation, it has prevented us from gathering. So, to you and your family, I extend my most heartfelt condolences and prayers for God's comfort in this time of sorrow. God bless you all!
