I have alot of good memories of your Mom. She is a very special person. And now she is with her soul mate. She is at peace & no more pain. You need to read the book "Heaven is for Real". It is a good book & we help you to understand where your Mom & Dad are at. I read it after I lost my granddaughter. It helps, Heaven is a good place. But it is still hard to let go. My thoughts & prayers are with all 3 of you guys. Hope we see you guys at family gathers.
