My dearest Cyndy,
I only reconnected with you in the past few years, and we weren't terribly close even when we were going to school together. But our friendship has developed since then, and I've grown very fond of you, a kindred spirit.
I obviously didn't know your mother, but I know well your love for her.
Losing to death our closest loved ones, even into the arms of the Lord of the Universe, is hard for us. Our hearts break, but they persist in the same hope of eternal life in Christ possessed by the departed, who are now in his presence, free of the hardship of life here, even the loss of we who remain. Your mother is blessed now beyond our wildest hopes, fantasies and comprehension. This is certain.
My prayer for you and your family is that you will grieve well, remember her with the deepest love, and persist in or find the path that will lead each of you back to her one day, a day in the not-too-distant future in any case.
