Dear Holly and family,
I am so very sorry for your loss. My deepest condolences. My thoughts and prayers go out whole heartedly to you and all close to your mom. As a person that lost her mom at 59 when I was only 18, I very closely understand the deepness of her passing. She was your best friend I know. She loved you, as I tell my children more than you will ever know and I know you loved her the same. She will always be with you, looking down from heaven upon you. You will hurt for her for the rest of your life, but the sharp knife you feel now, will lessen as life goes on. You will especially miss her with every milestone in your life, but talk to her, talk to God, tell them like she was still right here next to you. It is just an extra long phone cord to heaven. Most importantly go ahead and cry, there is nothing more important to cry about and crying is ok. Secondly, go ahead and talk about her, remember the things she did, said, quirks etc. And when you have a spouse and kids, tell them about her, her quirks, sayings, etc, share her pics, share her memory. Relish the good and wonderful and let that help wash away your pain. Finally you, Michael and your family you have an extra special closeness, lean on each other , hug a lot to get through this most difficult time in your life.
Know that you all are in my thoughts and prayers. Also if you ever need me or want to talk to someone that has been there, don't hesitate to lean on me. 740-632-1073.
Holly you will forever be another daughter of mine and I will always remember your moms kindness and smile. Her warm and happy heart made her glow from the inside.
Love and prayers,
Sandy and Gary
