When your mum is alive and you did not cherish the fact that she is alive and give her the best treat a good mother should get ,then, you will regret it if anything happens as death is timeless.
You don't need to wait till she is dead before you spend millions to give her befitting burial. I am not wishing any mother death but trying to remind you that death is
