I am so sorry that your beautiful Mother has left this earth. It is never easy, even when you know it is coming. I would like to share a quote that comforted me after my Mom passed. "Death leaves a heartache no one can heal. Love leaves a memory no one can steal." God bless and comfort your family. Melody Hudson
