Thank you for your love. You were one of strongest women that Ive known. Your sense of humor and that contagious smile will stay with me forever. The most valuable thing that you taught me was to have a relationship with Jesus because Hes there when no one else is. Ill miss our conversations and hugging you. I thank God for allowing you to be my mom. I love you.
