Mercedes, you have been an inspiration to me with your patience and admired how your dedication and Devotion to your daughter karen was. You are the Definition of what a mother truly is. Never giving up on your daughter to get to where she got to was amazing. Because of you and Arthur you put karen on top of the world and treated her like she had no Disability and made her strong to believe in herself that she could reach to her highest potential. You were there for your daughter from the beginning to the end. That is what love for a daughter means “ BECAUSE OF YOU”. We will miss our eating gatherings, laughter, happy times that we had for the past few months and thank god for reuniting us til the end. You and Karen will truly be miss but I’m happy that both you and your daughter are together again.
