Only an Aunt can give hugs like a mother, keep secrets like a sister and share love like a friend. You are the best thing to ever happen in my life.
I close my eyes as I wipe a tear. I just keep wishing you were still here. I will hold all the memories deep in my heart.
You were my Special Aunt/Big Sister, and an angel walking on the face of the earth. I hope to see you again someday. You were beautiful inside and out. I will now blow kisses to heaven. You were the best Aunt. Love your Neice/Little Sister Caroline. XOXO ❤😘

The next two days will be the hardest days of our lives. We will stand as a loving family and say goodbye to our beautiful Mom.
Mom you taught us to be compassionate, loving and showed us how important family is. You loved us wether we were bad or good. You always looked at us with unwavering love. I am going to miss you always but I know you will always be our bright shinning star looking down on us and be the mother you have always been, our protector. Love and miss you❤️
