Dear Mother, you will always be with us. There are not any adjectives that describe how amazing you were . Oh how lucky I am to have had you as a Mother. I love you more, Mom! Yes way! I will miss you and think of you everyday!

My wonderful aunt with whom I shared many things in common. She taught me a love of cooking and how to set up for dinner parties. She had wonderful style.
I have gifts from her that I cherish. My favorite is a little gold lapel/scarf pin in the shape of a cat. Its eyes are sapphires (my birthstone) and she gave it to me many, many, years ago. You will be missed but never forgotten. Love you.
