Dear Friends: Please accept my sincere sympathy on the passing of your mom. Losing a mom is tough. Of course, you have had to give "the long good-bye". Even so, it will be difficult no doubt. I lost my mom two years ago and I still miss her everyday. Your family will be in my thoughts and prayers in the difficult days ahead.

I always enjoyed our visits and I dont know who talked more her or me. Know that you are all in my thoughts and prayers. Love to all of you.
