  2. I know how devoted you were to your mom, we are “birds of a feather” that way, but we learned it from the best! You were the absolute best thing for your mom, she knows how much you loved her and you will miss her, but there are absolutely no regrets. We gave our all, because our mothers took care of us, and they deserved that same care from us. Your mother, I know, was so grateful to be able to live her life as she wanted, and to leave it on her terms. I’m sure she’s having a wonderful time with your dad and all the family that has gone before her.
