    So very sorry for the loss of your mom. God only lends them to us a for awhile. We don’t realize how blessed we to have had them in our lives. I know how you feel to lose a mother. Mother’s are strong women. Cherish all the memories of your mom. God bless you and your family. I will continously pray for you.
