Dear Gary, You and your mom shared such a special relationship. I know you are missing her, but I'll bet she is enjoying the next realm of her existence. I hope you feel surrounded by caring people and will let us help you through this time of loss. It is slightly astonishing to think of all the changes your mom lived through in her very long life. May you be comforted by goood memories.

Gary, I'm so sorry for your loss. The way you talked about your mother, I thought she'd be immortal. Considering the fine legacy she left in her offspring, she must have had a very good run indeed. She left the world a better place for having been here.
