Mom, your kindness always inspired me in more ways than one and the times we shared meant so much to me and were always so much lot of fun.
You taught me the true meaning of a mother's love and you more than once reminded me when I was in doubt to look up above.
Your strength and courage were amazing throughout this hard time and you were more than just a mother-in-law, you were also a best friend of mine.
You will forever be in my heart..
Love you today, tomorrow and forever.
