    It is with my deepest sympathies that I send my condolences on the death of your mom. I was so sorry to hear that she died, but I know now that at least her suffering is over. She was so strong in the way she battled her disease. I can't believe how she actually made it easier for all of us to deal with it, in spite of her pain.
