To the Family,
Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
A mother's love (parent, grand parent)for her child is Forever and having to lose him at an early age is extremely hard. Remember God loved him First and is still on the Throne! It'll be hard at times for you but try to reflect on the lovely memories God allowed you to share until the great reunion.
Praying that God will console, comfort you and grant you PEACE!

With Sympathy,
