Jennifer and family, I read your tribute to your Mother on facebook. There are no set of rules during a time like this, you do just what your heart tells you to do. I have been where you are right now. You never forget, God just allows each day to be better than the one before. After thirteen years I miss my Mom just as much as I ever have. God grants peace and comfort and after a while it doesn't hurt as must and becomes bearable. You have so many memories. Just tuck them inside your heart and on days when you feel like you just can't take it, take out your memories, relive them, and then tuck them safely back into your heart for another day. That's what I do. Nothing anyone can say will ease your hurt, you learn to live with it, but I promise, with time it will be ok. I love you and I pray for peace and comfort for you all. Remember you've been a blessing to her as she's been sick and she knows how much you love her. You will see her again. I love you my friend.
