Mama you will be missed greatly. I remember the times you would come up and we would sit up talking or I would be there and we would have such wonderful heartfelt talks. I will cherish all the talks and sometimes a secret or two you shared with me. May you rest in peace with the comfort in God's arms. Love you

Mother, I cannot even begin to express how much I love you and miss you. I know what you meant when you said it's a pain like no other to lose your mother. I am comforted by the many times you told me you knew how much I loved you, so I can find peace in knowing that you went with that knowledge. We had our differences at times but they never lasted for any length of time. You were always my rock, my best friend. You were always in my corner. My biggest comfort is knowing that we will be together again some day and we will dance on those golden streets in glory land. I love you forever and ever. Your oldest daughter. 💔💔❤❤
