Momma you were more than just a step-mom to me you were a mother and you loved me as your own even though you didn't have to. You will be missed forever. You will live on in our memories and I will cherish that forever. Thank you for being there for me and always smiling! Thank you for always telling me how proud you were of me and how beautiful I was, and how great of a mother I was. Your smile and laugh were so contagious. Anyone who knew you was truly blessed. We all miss you down here and love you very much. Just know my brothers/your sons are strong young men and I am very proud of them and know you are proud of them too. Please watch over all of us and keep us safe. We find comfort in knowing you aren't sick anymore and we know God gained a beautiful angel. Love you and miss you dearly. Fly high and give all our passed loved ones hugs! Forever in our hearts!
