    I am so sad to hear of your loss. Please know that we are thinking of you and anything we can do for you please let us know.

    I like to think of the happy times with you and your mom. She was sooo happy at your wedding she couldn’t stop smiling and do you remember when we made Christmas cookies at your house? Your mom came in and looked around and she couldn’t quite believe the mess we had made and all the electrical appliances that were running.

    Just know now that she is in a better place smiling down on you and your family.

    Love
    Shannon, Derek, Caitlin and Liam
