I miss you Ma so dearly. I think often about how wonderful of a Mother and a person you were. When I think of some of the kind words you spoke to myself and others, it makes my heart fill warm with joy. Don't worry about me down here, because we'll get to see each other again some day. And, it will be a wonderful Reunion. Rest In Peace. Love you. "Tine"
