I loved her as my own mother. She was beautiful on the inside as well as the out side. She always helped us in any way she could.
I know my husband and I will miss her dearly. She has been part of my life for 10 years. She will be in my heart forever.

Maw Maw Mae was more of a mother to me than a grandma. She helped me through so much. I will always remember I never understood how she would wake up with a smile and go to sleep with a smile no matter what.
