So sorry for your loss. Your Mom always made me feel as though she had known me all my life. So glad I had the opportunity to know her. She was a wonderful caring person. Our prayers are with you all.
It’s always difficult to come up with the right words. They always seem so inadequate. I’m glad that the long vigil is finally over though I know you would always want one more day. Still, the early Christians always celebrated the passing as opposed to mourning it. They were right. The soul is at peace and the parting is only temporary. So it’s not goodbye but,rather, til we meet again. That being the case her epitath would be -“someday”. I wish all of you all the best.
