Hani and I want to offer our sincere condolence and heartfelt sympathy on the loss of your dear Mother. I know how you took such good care of her, but I would imagine there was a time when she did the same for you! Mine turns 98 today, and those of us with good parents are very fortunate. Your Mother shared the same birthday with our son. You’re in our thoughts and prayers as you go through this difficult time.
Much Love,
Hani and Nancy
