I am so proud of you for the care you gave your mother in her last weeks. You made her as comfortable as you possibly could. You gave her joy beyond words by being there to care for her. It hurts terribly now but you can look back without regrets for what you have done for your mom. I love you and will always be there for you.
Love, Bryan

My thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time. Kay was a lovely lady whom I grew to know in the days since your marriage. I will hold fondly the memory of visiting with her and seeing her new condo and enjoying a beautiful dinner on the patio of the restaurant, not too long ago.
The heavens have taken a beautiful angel to look down upon you and watch over you with care. Know that you were loved greatly.

Please know that your mother was so lucky to have you there to help, love, and care for her after your father passed. I know that she hated to leave you as much as you hated to see her go. She was loved by many and will be missed.
