  1. Denise, I’m so sorry for your loss. I know no words to ease the pain of losing your Mom but may God grant you peace and may the caring of friends and your loving memories bring you comfort during this difficult time.

  2. Denise sorry to hear about your mom. There’s no words to ease your pain or say it gets easier. My prayers for you and your family. Losing a mom is losing your closet friend. The bond between a mom and daughter are the best. Your mom was such a kind hearted women. So sending you hugs. Along with when your mom went a part of her is in your heart and memories. Your mom took a part of you with her to heaven
