Dear Sue, I am so sorry to hear the very sad news about your mother. Please extend my heartfelt condolences to your siblings, children and grandchildren. Your mother was, and remains one of my all-time favorites. I will miss seeing her and enjoying her smile and humor. I will always remember her kindness and thoughtfulness and am blessed to have known her for all but a small fraction of my life. May the Lord shower her with eternal peace and love and bring comfort to you and your entire family.
