With deepest sympathy for the loss of your mother, may you find peace and comfort. Death brings pain that only time can heal. No words can ease what you truly feel; But with God, her joy is eternally sealed, and cherish her momories that death can't even steal. Our condolences to you Fati and your family.

Words can’t explain how I miss you grandma. My heart hurts everyday that you are not here. I know you are at resting and pain free in heaven and that gives me peace but it doesn’t fill the void I have in my heart. Please watch over us and keep us safe. Until we see each other again I love you my Hero..
