    Dear Kellie and family, your mom was beautiful and you can see all the love she had for all of you in your pictures. I have lost my mom and I know the feeling of a broken heart. Focus on all the wonderful memories you have of time spent together. Give yourself time to grieve and the healing can begin. Take care all of you. Will be praying
