I love this picture of her. That was one memory I was fortunate enough to be with her and her friends that night. Yesterday when I met with my father in law who will be delivering the message for her services to tell him stories of her, at first was kind of difficult because i guess all I could think about the last few days was just the fact that she was gone but after a while they just came flowing out like a river and I think she did that. She stepped in and just told him who she was through me and I am very thankful for that. Thank you mom for always being and doing the best you could even in times I knew I didn't help you, you still know that I wished I could. I hope you know that even when I was a brat, I loved you very much!
