I am so very sorry for the loss of your mother. Can only imagine how you are feeling. I’ve just begun this horrible journey with my mom. Hugs to you and peace to your mom.

A friend of mine told me a couple weeks ago that this is a season in all our lives. It’s painful but to find the love and acceptance and cherish the memories. Her words hit me hard and comforted me immensely.

I’ll be praying for your healing.
