Brian, I’m so sorry for the loss of your mother. I cannot imagine what you must be feeling. But my thoughts are with you. Remember that you have memories of your mother that are yours personally and those of other family members. Share these with each other freely and take the time to let yourself grieve. Hopefully, these memories will be a comfort to you.
My sympathies to you and your family, Sheryl
What can any of us say, especially under such sudden saddest of circumstances. We sometimes feel taken from and all too quickly, without goodbyes for reasons only One knows why. Please be at rest and peace in the days to come and remember we are remembering you and your family in our deepest thoughts. Best wishes always,
My heart is full of sorrow for you at this difficult time as you prepare to say good-bye to your mother. No words I can say can help lessen your grief.
I can only offer what has helped me when I had to let go of my parents. The comfort you seek comes from your memories of your mother. She lives in your heart, your thoughts, and also in your families’ memories. Your mom will still be present as you bring her back through the stories you recall, the pictures you look at, when you think of her, and through her grandchildren.
As long as she is in your heart, she is still with you. We, who are left behind, are selfish to want to be able to hug and hold them and never let go. We can but not as we once could before. Seek comfort in remembering her and she is there.
My thoughts are with you.
You have my deepest sympathy for Karen. I recall working with Karen several years ago at P&G. She was a really nice person.
Prayers with you and your family.
I was shocked to hear of Karen passing away. I had talked to her a couple of times about our NFA class reunion coming up next year. I am so sorry to hear about her passing away
