    Heather David Nick and Jacob, I am so sorry for your loss. Losing a mother and grandmother is one of life’s hardest things. In time you will learn to live with it but never get over. She will be forever in your hearts and memories. Let her love for each of you carry you thru this very hard time. If you always remember the good times you will be able to laugh as you think of her. It’s also ok to cry because you’re sad she is no longer here. Don’t ever let anyone tell you it’s time to get over it and move on because you never have to. Carry her with you as you move on but take all the time you need grieve. There’s no set time for that. It’s been 13 years since my mother left this world and not a day goes by that I don’t think of her and talk to her. I am always a phone call away if need an ear to listen to you. Sending prayers and lots of love hugs and kisses. I love you all. Theresa Lydon. ( Nicole’s mother.)
