    I am at a loss for adequate words to express my condolences for you and your family. Having the blessed opportunity of having you as one of my staff, getting to know you, and how you are a reflection of your mom, I know heaven has just received a special angel! You will always be a reflection of your mom in the way your treat people with respect and empathy. Not to mention the way you make each person feel loved. I am truly sorry for your loss.

    My Auntie Chubby,
    Whenever we got together it was always a joy! She had a way of making me laugh with her stories. Seems like yesterday that I visited her at the home and she told me a story (not always true at that point!) about each and every person that walked by AND about how she kept all of the staff in order. I will the visits that we had and, as frequently happens, I will say that I wish there had been many more.
    Your Mom was such a beautiful and dedicated mother. I know that our Lord has welcomed her with open arms into the eternal life that we all can look forward to. Although she is already truly missed, may we all, especially you—her precious daughter, be comforted by the many memories we have of her. And may you feel strength in knowing how many people love and care so much about you.
    I can be here for you if you need anything…just let me know when the next concert is!
