Hi Mrs. Forte,
27 years ago, I was one of your homestay son while studying at St Luke’s. You are a great mom and taught me different things even though we have been living together for only 6 months. The night before heading to US for college, you asked Jason to drive me to the airport, I also remembered we went to west Edmonton mall to buy me a Christmas gift. All those little things are coming up from my memory.
My heartfelt condolences. I pray that you are surrounded by God’s comfort love. I will miss you
