Mom, I could never fathom ever losing you, but the inevitable happened, I will miss the Saturdays and Sunday's, especially, we used to go to the mall, and then your favorite restaurants, Carrabas and The Red Lobster. I will always treasure all the memory's from being a young toddler, to grammar school,high school, then you and Dad coming every year to Florida for 17 years, before you moved down here by me. I miss you and love you so much, please come visit me in my dreams, I know you and Dad are my guardian angels, and You are watching over your grandchildren, and great-grandchildren, right mom? Thank you so much for being the Greatest Mother in the world to me and Billy, and Father also, I know your together, and your happy where you are. I will only dream of us being together again, until that time of rejoicing, I can never say goodbye, for we will be together again. Mother, Rest in Peace with Father, and thank you for all your Love.

Mom, thanks for not telling Dad I was bad when he got home from work and thanks for teaching me to dance and praying for me every day when I was in the Air Force and comforting me when I was sick or sad and making me smile even when you were so weak and for showing such strength and dignity in your last days and for being proud of me every day but most of all thanks for your precious smile that I will remember every day for the rest of my life. Your Son , Billy
