BJ: we are so sorry to hear about your Mom’s passing. I know you will miss her, but your memories will always be a comfort. Our prayers are with you and your family, and I pray God will give you peace.
Although I won’t be able to attend the funeral, BJ, I just wanted you to know you’re in my thoughts and prayers.
Love you, Peggy
So sorry to hear about your mother. I got the email too late to attend either visitation or the services. I know that this is a hard time for you but please let me know if there is ever anything I can do.
