Alex, Marina, Ang, Jim and Mark I am sorry for your loss but remember the good times with her. I am, like when she would cook all the fish and crabs that I would catch at night. Going to dinner with her. Helping her and Mark pick the car they bought long day that was lol. I am going to miss her so so much. I also loved her like my mom. she would always tell me to call her that. She would also call me her “son”. I’m going to miss you mom. love you always.

I was so sorry to hear about the loss of your mom. I lost my mom two years ago on June 6, and it was a very sad time for me. I can only sypathize with what you’re going through now.

Please know that you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. I know you must all miss her very much. She sounds like she was as beautiful inside as she was outside. I’m sorry I never had the chance to meet her.

May God see you through this difficult time, and may you be left with the memories of happy times you spent together.

There are no words that can capture my feelings at this moment except to say that I feel your pain, I say this because my mom just passed away some weeks ago and I was floored with it. I want you to know in your heart that I am here for you, should there be anything you need, even silence.

Much love to you extensive to all your family.
