  6. Carol my dear Sis, not by blood but of heart, I am SO very sorry for the loss of mom, although not blood related, and had never met her, I felt as though I knew her through you, dad as well. I can’t imagine the amount of pain and sorrow you’re going through, but just know that you were a wonderful daughter to her and took VERY good care of her when she fell ill, (dad too). Always remember that she loved you and keep those special memories you shared close to your heart. Please give my condolences to the rest of the family. Love you to infinity and beyond FOREVER XXX

  7. Dear Carol. Even though I never met your mum, I felt like I knew her and your dad through the many conversations we had about them. Always remember that they are together again for eternity, and there is no more pain for them, my dear friend. You made their last years on this earth happy with your devoted care always being the loving daughter. My sincerest condolences, love and prayers to you and your family. πŸ’œπŸ©·πŸ˜˜
