So sorry to hear of your loss... Having lost parents myself in the past I know there is nothing that someone else can really say. Do know that my heart goes out to you, and I pray that you find comfort in the Love you shared through the years, and the hope of eternal life we have in our Savior's promises.

I just read about the passing of your mother and I wanted to send my sympathy.  It's always hard to lose a parent but it seems as though when ones mother passes away it is like a history book of knowledge, as moms know everything and everyone.  I know you were close to your mom and your family will dearly miss her. Just remember to hold on to all those Precious Memories that you shared with mom and she will be in your heart forever.


Prayers and Sympathy to you and your family.
