    Melinda and family,
    My thoughts and prayers are with you as you stumble through the transition and try to find a new way of life. As hard as it has been to experience the daily decline, it has been just as much of a gift to your Mother for you to be with her. You will forever treasure the time you shared. God bless you, my friend.

    Despite the loss of the physical presence of your mother, we know that God has assigned her to watch over you and your family throughout your life. I feel for your loss and may you, Melinda (and family) take comfort in knowing that your mother is watching over you now. I extend my most sincere condolences to you and your family. -D.Francis
