OUR MOM ENJOYED PLAYING WITH US AS CHILDREN
THOUGH SHE WAS VERY CHORE AND TASK MOTIVATED
SHE WOULD LET US BUILD FORTS AND SHE HELPED US WITH OUR HOMEWORK. SHE LOVED OUR FATHER AND WAS A LOYAL AND DEVOTED WIFE. SHE LOVED HER CHILDREN AND GRANDCHILDREN AND NIECES AND NEPHEWS VERY MUCH, SHE CARED ABOUT HOW LIFE WAS FOR US
AFTER SHE TURNED FOURTY SHE PRAYED EVERYDAY FOR ALL GOOD PEOPLE OF GOODWILL. SHE SAID EXTRA PRAYERS FOR THE DISABLED AND PEOPLE WHO WERE ILL. SHE FELT THAT REMEMBERING OUR DEAD RELATIVES WAS HER RESPONSIBILITY SO DAILY SHE REMEMBERED THEM IN PRAYER . SHE LOVED GETTING ON THE FLOOR AND PLAYING WITH HER GRANDCHILDREN. SHE WANTED FAIRNESS AND JUSTICE AND RIGHT AND LOVE TO ALWAYS WIN.
