My deepest sympathy go out to your family during this time of sorrow. The death of a love one is always difficult. Therefore, I'd like to share scripture that may help. Please, read John 6:40, 44.

My deepest sympathy in the loss of your Mom. Cherish those many memories that you have. I have many from the "50"s. She was always smiling and ready to greet you. My parents always enjoyed their visits with your parents Sorry that I cannot attend the services
