    I am so sorry to hear of your Mom’s passing. It’s hard when you lose your first parent and even harder with your last parent.
    Your Mom and Dad were so kind to let me stay with you to finish college. I will never forget that until the day I die.
    Thinking of you and your family. May God give you peace during this time.
    With Love
