  2. Kevin and Tina: I saw the notice in the Star, and I am very sorry to hear of your Mother’s passing. It’s been 11 years since I lost my Mum and I still think about her every day. I know there is nothing I can say that will make this loss easier for you. But I also know that there will come a time when all your good memories will help to lighten your grief. My thoughts are with you and your family.
