Bill, Lorraine and Family,
It is with saddness that I read of Mom's passing. Such a quiet, loving, friendly lady who always spoke to everyone when people entered CNR. We never can fully accept their death, even at this age, as we love them so much. May memories, you all shared, help you heal and go forward with the difficult days ahead. If you need anything, please, reach out to me. I understand , fully, what you are all experiencing right now. Rest In Peace Alice, be re-united with family and we will all see you again someday. God Bless You All..
