I am so sorry for the loss of your mom. I truly believe that when you lose a parent, their spirit continues to live on in their children and grand children; in the fond memories that we hold dear to our heart, a resemblance in the look or mannerism that appear in a grandchild, by all that they taught us and the people they helped us to become.

Please know my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
