To my beautiful Mother; I love you and miss you. You were the one who kept our family together and dedicated yourself to the family to make us each a better person. Even though I was not able to see you in the final months; because of covid-19, I cherish each and every phone call I made to you to let you know that I loved you and thanked you for being such a wonderful mother to me. I will miss all those stories of your family adventures when you were a young girl and asking you questions about your family. Mother; I love you!
