I am so sorry about the loss of such a beautiful person. I worked with Monica at Amica, and she always talked about her "girls". How ironic is it that my son is in school with Andrew and I got to meet Sherie. Please accept my sincerest condolences. May her beautiful spirit carry you on the difficult days ahead.

One of my favorite quotations comes from a poem by Emily Dickinson, "Love is like life...merely longer"

Love between a mother and daughter is forever

Please accept my sincere condolences for the loss of your mother. Words cannot express the pain and loss you may feel. The God of all comfort understand your pain and is near those brokenhearted and crushed. He will be of comfort to you at this difficult time. Psalms 34:18 and 2 Corinthians 1:3,4 May your hearts find peace and comfort from all those around you.
