cant describe how special you were and what you meant to me. I'll think
of you every day I'll take your memories everywhere I go. You were more
than a mother you were my heart my comfort my peace and best friend.
Although it hurts and I'll miss you please don't worry about me. Now you
have your wings I hope you're finally resting in peace. Forever in our
hearts love you! Mama.
