    Just wanted to let you girls know that you will be in my thoughts and prayers during the next few days. I know this is a bitter-sweet time for all of you. On the one hand knowing that your precious Mother is now in a perfect place where there is no suffering, but also dealing with the tremendous feeling of loss on the other hand. As we said today, nobody ever loves us like our Moms! It was my privilege to get to be of service to your family during these very difficult moments. Please let me know if I can be of further assistance. God bless!
