Paula, I know your loss. I did not know your mom but I know how you loved and cared for her. I am sorry for your loss and know she will be missed every day. John and I know how hard it has been and how this brings such sadness. I will not try to say all the things that are said. I will just say I am here and I understand. Your neighbor and friend.
