I can't really express the depth of my sorrow for the loss of your mother. However, I want you to know that I'll always be here for you, especially during those times when you may feel the burden of her loss so acutely. Be secure and take pride in the fact that she left this earthly life as a loved and loving Child of God. You are your mother's cherished legacy and I am sure that you will do well by her and make her proud.
