    Laura, you are in my thoughts and prayers. I know how difficult this time has been, but your mother is at peace now. She should be very proud of the daughter she raised.

    Our prayers are with you and your family.
    Remembrance
    Remembrance is a golden chain
    Death tries to break,
    but all in vain.
    To have, to love, and then to part
    Is the greatest sorrow of one’s heart.
    The years May wipe out many things
    But some they wipe out never.
    Like memories of those happy times
    When we were all together.

    Laura & Family:
    My thoughts have been with you and your mother daily since my mother left us in October 2010.
    Her new journey has begun with her Spirit as her body was just the vessel for her Earthly life.
    Our Prayers are with you at this time of grief and sorrow.

    Dear Laura,
    I was so sorry to hear of your loss. All your friends and colleagues here at DDS are thinking about you and wishing you comfort at this time. Your devotion to your mother during her last illness was admirable. We will be here for you in the coming weeks.
