    To the Countee Family…
    My condolences to all of you. I want to thank you for sharing such a special person; allowing me to love her as a mom and having her love me back. “Mom” was such a genuine, kind and caring person. She was a joy to be around and I enjoyed every moment I got to spend with her! I know this is still a difficult time for all of you. You probably find times that you want to pick up the phone to talk to her or run by the house to see how’s she doing and she’s not there. But know that she’s in your heart and watching over you all the way! Cherish her memories forever! Remember that God is your true source of comfort and trust him to help you through the pain. Take as much time as you need to grieve, but know that “mom” would want you to continue to live life and make it the best life you can, because she lived life! If you ever need me, I am here for you. I’m only a phone call away! With sympathy and great love for “mom” and the rest of the family!
