My mother worked hard to make sure that my sister and I never wanted for anything. She sacrificed so that Panda and I could have a better life . Along with our grandparents and our uncle and his wife she made sure that we were happy healthy from the moment we were born. Thankfully we were able to have a conversation several months ago where I felt moved to say everything that needed to be said and I am thankful to God for having given me the opportunity . Love you mama and I know you’re in heaven with Papa and grandma . Someday I will meet you again .
