My dear , dear friend. Your mom was special in every way. She, along side with your dad called me daughter in Spanish. I always felt so loved by mom. I embraced her direct approach to life. And how she would swear( in a lady like way) . Yes, she is missed already.
I know your love and care was appreciated by her. Laura, she knew you loved her. I wish I could have been there to help you in some way. Perhaps just a hug and let you know that you're loved. Take care of you, it's ok. Love you- Jolene
