I know the loss that you are now experiencing but it will get better.. Nobody could have met your mother and not loved her. I loved her and I will miss her. Her sweet nature was a joy to experience. I am so grateful that I came to know and love her after your fathers passing. I will be feel joy when I think of her and sadness for the void she will leave in our hearts. I am comforted, however, by the knowledge that she is at peace and her darling little face will be watching over us along with our other deceased loved ones. God bless.
