Miss you Mom. It was my honor to assist with your care over the years since Dad passed away. We had our laughs, memories and special moments together. I wouldn't trade the time I had with you for anything. My heart is broken, but I know you're in heaven with Dad. Give Dad, Bill, John and Doris a hug for me. Miss them all. See you all soon. Love you. 💔💔💔💔💔
