My mom was a shy,kind,and quiet woman
She tried her best to take care of us
She would always make sure we had what we needed
She was generous to a fault
She may not of said she loved us very much but she did with all of her heart.
I will treasure the memories I have had with her and love her always and forever
Love you mom u will be missed and someday I will see u again.

I remember the times I spent with you as kid growing up and the fun times we had. I remember you calling me on my birthday just to tell me happy birthday. You are loved and missed.
