Saying Goodbye to a loved one is surely one of life's most difficult tasks. Thre are no words powerful enough, no music soothing enough to erase the pain at a time like this. But I have found consolation in knowing how much my friends care and love me by their outpouring of condolences and sympathies on the death of my mother, Clemintine. My heart is heavy but at the same time full of gratitude. I would like to personally thank everyone near and far for their prayers, kind words, and thoughts of inspiration.
