"We appreciate what you are doing for the kids. Most of the time, we as adults get so caught up in our own grief that we forget that the children are feeling the loss also. They don't know how to process their feelings sometimes."
"I pray for my mom. It makes me feel good that I can talk to her even though she is gone."
