I'm so sorry for your loss! Your mom was such a sweet lady. She was always so friendly to me and when we worked at Saint Luke's together we would stop by each other's desks every couple of weeks and catch up. She used to tell me all about you and your children. She was so proud of you and all that you've done. She bragged about you all the time. I loved talking with her and listening to her stories. She's going to be missed dearly. I hope you can find comfort in knowing she is no longer suffering and is now at peace. My thoughts and prayers are with you and I'm so sorry I cannot make it to the services tonight. I'll be thinking of you and your family.
