My deepest sympathies go out to your family.  I was Kahla's first grade teacher and have been blessed by seeing how close Kahla was to her precious mom.  How awesome it was to feel the strength and love in the two of you.  Your mom was a lucky lady to have you as a daughter and the chances that I got to know your mom, you were blessed with a special mom.  She loves you and will be with you in your heart with an unconditional love that will last forever.  I wish a peace for your family that passes all understanding knowing your mom is in heaven now with no pain or suffering.  Love to all!  -Debbie
