Jennifer, Saying goodbye to someone we love is heartbreaking. May you find comfort in all the special memories shared with your mom and your friend, Lois. Although no words can really help to ease the loss you bear, just know that you are very close in my every thought and prayer. I have learned one thing in this journey we all are on....we need to celebrate the life lived. What moves through us is a silence, a quiet sadness, a longing for one more day, one more word, one more touch. We may not understand why she left this earth so soon, or why she left before we were ready to say good-bye, but little by little, we begin to remember not just that she died, but that she lived. And that her life gave us memories too beautiful to forget.
