I was both sad & joyous when I saw that your Mom had passed. I know what you’re feeling because my Mama went home to the Lord on 2/25/10. In time your grief will subside somewhat knowing that she will no longer hurt, etc. I wish I could be at her service, but I can’t. I love y’all & will be praying for your healing!
In Friendship and Caring at a time like this,friends want to share the sorrow that you feel and let you know their caring so very warm and real and so,whatever help and comfort friendship now can be,it yours today with warmest thoughts and deepest sympathy.
