Dear Debbie,

I am so sorry for the loss of your mom. I know exactly what you are going through. I still cry. You were a very good daughter!! And I could see your mom appreciated your time & effort you spent with her. I hope you have good support from family & friends. The first week I was in a cloud, but with my sisters support I got through that. But its afterwards that is the hardest. Just remember the blessings of your mother's love are yours forever.
