    My heart goes out to your Mom. I have a daughter very close to me and if something happened to her I feel I could not go on. This is not an easy time for your Mom so I hope God and the people around her can be of great comfort to her.
    We are not suppose to bury our children.

    May you rest in peace and become an idol among the stars…
