    Darlene, I'm so sorry to hear that you lost your Mother. I know how you feel. When you lose your Mother, you've lost your best friend. My Mom has been gone now for 9 years, and I miss her as much today, as I did the day I lost her. The only thing that takes that pain away, is knowing that she is not suffering anymore, and that she is in heaven, safe in God's arms watching over me! I will be praying for you. Take care.
