Mom there are not enough words to describe the love and admiration I have for you. I learned strength from you which in turn helped me get through my tough times. I'm not sure I could have made it without you and your constant love and devotion. It will be hard going on without you and I will especially miss our daily calls before I came to New Braunfels to help take care of you. I will treasure those memories forever. I am so thankful you were my Mom and I learned so much from you that will stay with me for the remainder of my life. You are "My Heart"
