Dear Mom,

No matter what anybody says about grief, and about time healing all wounds,  the truth is, there are certain sorrows that never fade away until the heart stops beating and the last breath is taken.

Love you a whole lot Mom, I will miss you with every beat of my heart.

I'm so sorry to hear about Joyce.  Joyce & my sister, Rachel, were such good friends.  Joyce & Rachel are now spending time together with lot's of loved ones in heaven.  I can see them laughing together now.  We will always have a hole in our hearts for those we loved so much but know that we will see them again some day.  My prayers are with the family.'
