Sorry for your loss. Wanted to show you some support as you all go through this difficult time. I lost my mom in 2002 and it seems like yesterday. It doesn't get much easier with time but we just get used to the absence and hold on to our dear memories and have faith that what we believe in our faith of God and heaven gives us peace knowing that our loved one is still alive in Him. Much love and prayers for strength.

My condolences to the family. Amy, your post on facebook was heartbreaking. I have not been through the pain of losing a parent yet, but watched both my parents lose their's in the last 16 years. May you, your siblings and father find some peace, even through the difficulties this brings. She is always with you in spirit and in heart, and you'll keep her alive in stories to your children and grandchildren.

All the best, and I am so, so sorry.
