    As I have already posted on Facebook, it’s so difficult to lose your mother as it leaves a hole in your heart nothing and no other person can possibly ever fill as she was the heart of the home and center of the family. As Steve and I have experienced this, we know you will miss her, but glad her suffering is now over. Know that we love you and our thoughts and prayers are with the entire family.
