Happy Mother's Day, Mama. It has been 10 months since you have been gone, and I still miss you everyday. I wish I could call you today and wish you a Happy Mother's Day, and hear your voice. I love you, and wish you were still here with us.

Happy Birthday, Mama.

Today, you would have been 59 years old; Valentine's Day will never be the same without you. You will always be the Queen of Hearts in my book! Not a day goes by where I don't think about you; when I wake up, your picture on my wall brightens my day. I miss you so much, and wish that I could be making more memories with you today and everyday. I chose today, a very special day for me and you, to ask Mark to marry me. I want to make and keep this day a happy day for me. I love you so much!

Irene, I only got to spend a little bit of time with you, but the time I got was special. You were a sweet, caring and loving woman. You will live on in the hearts of your loved ones and friends. God bless

I've known Irene since I was 4 years old and she has always been in our family. She made us laugh and she was such a fun person to be around. My mom and her loved to keep each other company, most times they were like two peas in a pod. Irene you will be missed and we love you so much. Rest in peace and have fun up there!

Mama you will always hold a special place in my heart. You adopted me as your daughter and always put a smile on my face. Memories of you will never fade away. You will live on through our hearts and memories. May you rest in peace. We will see you again some day.
