Dear Anna, I am so sorry for your loss. Your mother must have been a really amazing woman because she has such a special daughter. I know hat words can't bring the kind of comfort that you need right now but I hope that you can find comfort in fond memories of your mom and in all of the ways that she has touched your life and the lives around you. Sending you love.

A thing of beauty is a joy for ever: Its loveliness increases; it will never Pass into nothingness; but still will keep A bower quiet for us, and a sleep Full of sweet dreams, and health, and quiet breathing. – John Keats

I know words can do little to take away the pain you are feeling, so may the God of comfort be with your family, helping you to cope. I have found free, comforting, information on I hope it can prove to be a source of solace to you as well. (2 Thessalonians 2:16, 17 and Psalms 147:3)
