Truly an angel to me, you accepted me as one of your own. You took me under your wing and showed me what it was like to have a mother. Forever in my heart, we will meet again one day and dance amongst the clouds!

A part of me is now in Heaven, as you took a good part of my heart with you. I can’t thank my Father in Heaven enough for taking you home. Next time I see you you’ll be perfectly healthy. I’m looking forward to that day. I love you always Mom and thank you for all that you’ve done for all of us.

Your loving son,
