Dear mom, how I remember when you would hug me and tell me that everything is going to be okay. No matter what I was going through you were always there to listen and help me through the tough times. Even though you have gone to heaven to be with Jesus I will always keep you in my heart and remember all the good times we had. I will see you in Heaven one day and give you hug and tell you that I love you.
