Roger,
Moms are such special people. They hold our hands when we are first learning to walk, they hold our first crayon pictures like they are Picassos, and they hold their breath when we are first learning to drive, but they hold our heartstrings forever.
With deepest sympathy on the passing of your mom. I know you miss her. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

For as long as I can remember you have inspired me to do my best, and to be strong, and compassionate, but to also embrace life for what it is and make the most of it. You raised 3 strong children with love and fire in our souls, safe journey, and we will live life with your words, and love in our hearts and minds
