Mom was my best friend and I'll never miss a day telling her how much I love her and miss her.

She passed on her strength to me when I saw her for quick visit the funeral gave me and my brother. I left feeling different and I know she made things okay for me. I wasn't sure I was strong enough to go but I left there with a comfort that she is at peace and new found will to go on without her.

She was an amazing woman full of love care for everyone and everything. She had a kind heart and would do anything she could to help people, even strangers and definitely animals. If she had it to give you could bet she would. She has a beautiful soul that will live forever in me and my family and we will love her forever.

Until we meet again mom, thank you for everything you did for me, you were the best and my best friend. I will carry you with me every minute of everyday as I have with Brad.

Hug Brad often for me and always tell how much I love and miss him to.

Until we meet again Mama you will always be in my heart ❤ and I love you with all that I am.

I remember when I first met Edith and her family, I was just starting to date her brother. Her family and herself welcomed me and my daughter with open arms and hearts. I will cherish her memory for the rest of my life and will miss the family barbecues we had at her place.
