I called you during every crisis and you bailed me out. I could tell you my darkest secrets. You loved me anyway. You always encouraged me and reminded me of what is really important in life. Your faith grew stronger throughout your life, and I know it was great comfort to you after you lost your beloved daughter Kelli. You taught me to save and invest. I promise to be more frugal and not get caught up in the material things of this world. I will miss getting your phone calls and letters. You were tough, but over time that made you soft and kind. Your death won’t be in vain. I promise to let your example of kindness and forgiveness guide me to be a better person. I love you Mom!
