Christena Blain

When I was a little girl I was chewing gum and my mom started to tickle me and I blew a big bubble and it popped in her face and the gum got all over her face and in her hair. We laughed hard. What a good memory that was. I miss you mom and I love you and I will always miss you and love you. The angels, and God has you now.
