Mom, I love you so much you are a great Mom and my best friend. I will miss your beaming smile when I came home for visits and cherish every minute we spent together no matter what we did. I was with you and that's all that mattered. You taught me so much and valued our family and the simple things made you so happy. I am so lucky to have you in my life and as my Mom and will savor all of those wonderful memories forever. You were always there when I needed you and I thank you.
You will always be with me Mom in my heart. Sending you lots of hugs may God bless you.
