Mi Amore, my heart aches for you. I know the love and devotion that you had for your mother. She was blessed to have a caring, compassionate daughter as you. Be mindful that you did EVERYTHING you could to make her comfortable. Now she is no longer in physical pain. She’s with your dad , and her family. However, as we often discussed , she will be forever by your side, in your heart, soul and brain. I’m so sorry, I wish I was there to personally extend my sympathy. Stay strong. ❤️
