Dear Cheryl and family,
So sorry for your loss. You’re in my thoughts. In Ireland? When you’re feeling up to it, drop a line. I know it will take time to come to grips with it all, and feel she is still in your life every day in a special way. Nor.

Condolence from Pat and Bob Freeman on August 30th, 2010 2:30 pm

Dear Cheryl

I was so sad the day I heard about your Mother’s passing. There never is a good time for their leaving us physically no matter what age they have achieved. She looked so regal at your wedding. So happy she could make that journey with you. I found this verse –

“Mothers teach us to love,
to see beauty,
to take our place in the world…
and bloom there.
Your Mother will always live in your heart,
in your memories and
in the way you see the world.
May you find comfort in her presence all around you.”

I hope the sadness of this time is quickly replaced with those comforting memories in your heart.

Big Hug to you – Cheryl – and Rob
Plan to see you soon.

Love Pat and Bob XXOO
