    We are so sorry to hear of the passing of your mother, grandmother , aunt, sister, and wife. Although we haven’t been in touch in a number of years, it breaks our hearts to know of her passing. She was the epitome of what mothers are about.

    I personally remember times as a child she was like another mother to me, very kind and attentive. In adult years, your Mom was very easy to talk to, a kindred spirit, and made what can be so complicated, so simple. In todays world, we all need to find simplicity in things once again.

    We regret to not make your Moms’s funeral as it was so short a notice. But she will be in our hearts as one of the greatest mothers ever. As you say, “Thank you Mom. for everything”. You will be missed, and cherished in our hearts forever.
