I'm sorry to hear of your mother's passing. Whenever we were at your house she was such a kind, cheerful, and hospitable woman, and I'm glad you were able to have a loving mother like her in your life. She raised a man of great character, and now she will still make the world smile through you. May God give you and your family peace during this difficult time.
