Words may fail when I wish to personally express my sorrows and sadness to hear about the bereavement of your mother. She was a true lady of wisdom. I remember the time when she used to greet all of us with a big smile on her face. May GOD give you strength and courage to deal with such a difficult phase. Please accept my sincerest condolences.
