    Please accept my deepest sympathy and regards for the passing of your mother. I am so very sorry that I was unable to attend the scheduled services and have not reached out to you sooner. Please know that you were, and continue to be, in my thoughts. My mom and I carry you in our hearts. I truly consider it a beautiful gift that I was able to reconnect with Helen at Brookside after a number of years had passed and also have had the opportunity to get to know you, her family, a little better. Your mom was a very special person and carried such beautiful energy. I know you must miss her greatly…take care.
