    I miss you so much mom! You were my best friend and you always gave the best advice even if I didn’t take it some of the time until much later Lol. You always made me laugh and always made me feel loved. You were such a good judge of character and I wish I had learned that sooner. I have a huge hole in my heart that can never be filled but I’m so glad you are no longer suffering and I can’t wait to see you again in Heaven one day! I love you ma and always will!
