  • I just wanted to say how sorry I am for your loss. I loved your mom. She was a very sweet person. I saw her a while back at the hospital and she told me she had cancer. I told her that I would pray for her and I have been praying for her every night. She is not suffering anymore and at peace. I pray that the Lord will comfort you during this time.
