  • Darlene, so sorry on the loss of your mother. I know you will miss her, but you were a very good daughter and did everything to make her life more comfortable.

  • Darlene, I was sad to hear of your Mother’s passing. I know you oversaw her care in the past few years and cared deeply for her.

    When I lost my parents, the pain was almost unbearable. I can only imagine what you’re going through. With time, it will be better. I often still think of my parents. Sometimes when I am walking through a store, I will look at an item and think Mom and Dad would really like that.

    Sometimes when I know where I put something away and it is not there I will say, “Okay, Mom, where did you put it?” It will show up again just where it should be.

    We have truly been blessed to have the parents we had for the length of time we had them.

  • Nick Peg, So sorry for your loss, I know how much love Nick had for his mother. Thinking of you. Kathy & Chuck
