You were the rock of our family, the one who tried to hold us all together. Your unconditional love for all of us and the impact you had on all of our lives in one way or another will always be remembered. I will never forget the days you helped take care of me when mamma was working, you teaching me how to make biscuits from scratch, and teaching me about Jesus and his unconditional love for us. You truly had the heart of christ and it showed through your actions. I know you are finally happy to be home with God and you are by his side now with papa and Mammma and so many others who have gone before you, free at last from the troubles of this world. I have always loved you and I hope you know the impact you had on my life. Thank you for always loving and praying for us and never judging any of us despite our shortcomings. I will miss you so much but I know in my heart I will see you again one day when my time comes, and it will be a happy day because we will be together forever with Jesus.
