Dear Mom, I will miss you greatly. I consider myself the luckiest man in the world to have had you as my Mother for over 50 years. You were dealt some tough hands over the years, never complaining, and always courageously meeting the challenges head on.

You were the most loyal, selfless, loving, and supportive person that I've ever know, and I know that I will see you again some day under happier circumstances. I'm so glad that you are not suffering or in pain any longer, but it doesn't mean that I don't already miss you dearly. You were a true servant to others, always helping out family and friends by taking them to doctor appointments, to get groceries, and always being there for them to provide support . You never put yourself first, and if I can be half the person you were going forward, I'll consider myself a huge success. Just know that you made a positive impact on many people's lives, and that will never be forgotten.

Thank you for being the best Mom a guy could ever ask for, and I love you very much!
