    Bonnie, I am so sorry for the loss of your mom….I know that she loved you and your family so very much….We all know that one day we will be faced with losing our parents but we block it out of our minds because we feel they should be with us forever….They are with us just in spirit once they leave this world….Cherish the memories because that is now all we have…one day you will be reunited with those that went before you….prayers of comfort in this time of grief…
