Words, however kind, can’t mend your heartache, but those who care for you share your grief and wish you comfort and peace of mind. No words can really help to ease your loss, know that you are in my thoughts and prayers. I will offer Mass for your mom this Monday.
"Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted. Matthew 5:4
