I will always remember her radiant smile. I also remember standing in the kitchen learning how to make gravy step by step like it was yesterday. Mom M was and always will be a beautiful soul.

Mom, Words cannot express how heartbroken I feel. I loved calling you to catch up, and listening to your stories that made me laugh. I will miss seeing your beautiful smile and feeling those wonderful hugs. You taught me how to be strong and brought me back to my faith when I became lazy with it. Your love for Dad showed me the kind of love that I wanted in a relationship. You were always there to listen and give advice when I was struggling. You knew me well, and sometimes better than I knew myself. You were a wonderful mother, friend and wife to Dad, the love of your life. You will be missed more than you ever could have imagined. I know you are with Jesus. You always said that He had you. I am happy that you are no longer in pain, no longer struggling, and no longer suffering. You were truly a gift, and we all were lucky to have you for our mother. I wasn't ready to say goodbye, but I know that I will see you again. I love you big bunches.

I was so lucky to have the most beautiful mommy ever created. I miss you so much mom. I'm going through the pictures now and smiling and crying. I remember all of our trips and adventures. I remember you belting out "AH SWEET MYSTERY OF LIFE AT LAST I'VE FOUND YOU!!! AHHHH I KNOW AT LAST THE MEANING OF IT ALL!" Of course that last part was screamed out and we would laugh and laugh. The more we laughed the louder you screamed. I'm so sad right now, but I'm so glad you're not hurting anymore. You always said that Jesus took care of you, so I know you're having a nice cloud ride and watching over all of us. I love you and I'll see you when Jesus calls me home.
