Condolence & Memory Journal

I am so sorry for your loss! Although I have never had the opportunity to meet your mother in person, I live through those memories you have shared with me. Those memories through our conversation's have allowed me to know the closeness of your relationship. I know your heart is hurting right now but know that you were the best son any mother could pray for. You were able to achieve the friendship with your mother that most of us only hear about. We love you so much, if you need anything please let us (your Senate family) know.
