I'm so sorry for the loss of your Mother. She was a wonderful lady, and I know you will miss her terribly. I will be praying for you during this difficult time.

Sending my deepest condolences to the family. May you have hope and comfort through God’s word. Revelation 21:3,4 “With that I heard a loud voice from the throne say: “Look! The tent of God is with mankind, and he will reside with them, and they will be his people. And God himself will be with them. And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”
