I don’t think anyone ever had a Godmother as wonderful as my Krsná Mama. She’s been in my life since the day I was born. Krsná Mama was the Niece of my Mom and they were best friends. I spent many summers in Connecticut and have so many stories that I will never forget. Most of all I will remember Krsná Mamas wit and love of family. She will live forever in my heart and memories. I love you!! ❤️
