Although I only knew her through my Facebook friendship with her son, I admired everything I knew about her. It will soon be six years since I lost my own mother, so I can truly say I know how Bruce feels.

Bruce, Janet and Keanna, I am so sorry for your loss. Words cannot adequately express. I know you cared deeply for her and that you took good care of her and that's what counts. May God comfort you in your mourning.
