   So sorry to hear about your mom's passing. I do not believe I personally know anyone who suffered more medical issues  in her life than your mom. However, when I picture her, I remember her always laughing and smiling. I cherish those fond memories.
Please know how proud she was of you and how much she appreciated all your love and support. I wish I could promise it will get easier, but I still miss my mom and dad every single day.
Praying that God eases your pain.
Your cousin
Julie Riviello (from Clyde)
