I remember telling you I was having a baby and how excited you where, how almost everyday you would call and check on him even though he isn't here yet. The excitement in your eyes in your eyes not just about him but about everything in life. Despite all the things you have been through you where always able to keep strong for your kids and your grandkids. You made 4 beautiful children and 1 of them im proud to call my mother. Thank you for everything you have ever done for me and im sorry if I didn't seem grateful. I love you and will spend everyday making sure my son knows what a great women you are. Rest with Danny, Anthony, Nana and Steve. I will see you again some day. I love you
