Your mom was always gracious, always sweet, always kind hearted. Her gentle spirit is something I will always remember. I am deeply saddened for you, my dear friend. I hope you are able to take comfort in knowing that you were a wonderful companion for your mom, and had become an excellent caregiver as well through the difficulties your mom faced in the last few years. Your mom was very proud of you, and we completely understand why she was proud. Praying for you and your family as you navigate the days ahead.
