    To my close best friend Chris, Janice and I are deeply saddened to hear the news of the passing of your MOM, Donna. The past year has been most difficult in so many ways for you and your family and we wanted to send our heartfelt prayers and condolences. May your Mom’s soul be at peace with our Heavenly Father. We pray for peace and comfort for you and your loved ones at this most difficult time. I will always remember all of the good times we had and memories I have with your MOM many of which are from our childhood days either hanging out at your house or at the beach cottage. May your Mom now join your Grandmother and Grandfather in heaven to be together once again and look down upon you and your entire family with enormous love. I love you my friend and brotha and will always be here for you no matter what! Prayers and hugs to you!
