    I want to say that I am very sorry for your lost of your Mother. I know about all of you guys and I know how it hurts to lose your mom and dad but it hurts more when you lose your best friend, please don’t tell dad, the only person that keeps the family together and keeps all the secrets and promises that you told her. The one who had our meals on the table and washed all of our clothes for school the next day, helped with homework and so on. I love all of you and my heart breaks with your heart. May God fine piece within you and comfort you in every way.
