Yolanda, my dear dear friend, please know that I will remember the repose of the soul of your mom in my daily masses and prayers. Also know that I will ask our Lord to give you and the family strength to accept His will at this sad hour. Take consolation in knowing that your mom is now in peace with our God. Luv Ya. The King
