I extend my deepest sympathy on the loss of your Mother. You were very blessed to have been able to have her in your life for so many years. A mother's love is always with her children. Losing a mother is one of the deepest sorrows a heart can know. But her goodness, her caring, and her wisdom live on like the legacy of love that will always be with you. May that love surround you now and bring you peace. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
