    I am sorry for your loss. She was a wonderful person. I’m sorry I couldn’t make it today. I was at my own mother’s funeral. Your family will be in our thoughts and prayers.

    Hi all,
    my thoughts and prayers go out for you in this time ….especially not able to have a service / wake / mass / burial to put it behind you instead of just sitting in limbo ….
    I work with Kev…. and I like his thoughts “at least she is not suffering and at peace!”
