    Dear Roya, I was saddened to hear the loss of your mom. I am glad I had a chance to see her before she left us. I know it must be very difficult for you, but hope her good memories help bringing you comfort. She will always be alive in our hearts and we will always remember our times with her. With deep condolences!
