    Please accept my deepest sympathy for I too know the pain of losing someone as important as your mother. May you find comfort in knowing that our loving heavenly Father Jehovah promises us that very soon he will cause all tears, pain, and even death to 'pass away' by means of his son Jesus. (Revelation 21:4) What a wondeful day that will be!
