My Mom was the best mother anyone can hope to have. She was so caring and supportive growing up, I couldn't have had a better childhood. That support never changed her whole life as she loved me unconditionally as she did all of our family, and had the kindest heart. Her greatest love was for my Dad, and their love story was one for the ages. I'm so happy Mom is at peace and hope her and Dad are happily reunited. Thank you Mom for all your love, you will be missed.
