To the greatest mom ever

I’ve spent last couple of days going through pictures and remembering all the good times...you were the ultimate of pep talks when family was feeling down...being dad passed away so young that task was left solely on your shoulders and you performed it to perfection...I will deeply miss those talks and will still be talking with you time to time in my mind as I know you can still hear me..I have so many great memories... from driving you crazy In worry when I used to ride my motorbike all over the country side on the farm 😀to the middle of the night storm watching and the great debates about life and the world..
No one could ask for a better mom, you were always my biggest supporter in everything and for that I thank you for making me who I am today..
I will miss dearly not being able to pick up the phone and hear your voice..but I have piece of mind knowing that the health troubles you’ve endured over the last while will no longer slow you down..

Love always and forever ❤️
