To my mother, my best friend, you will never be forgotten. You were the best mother anyone could have. I will cherish all the memories we had together . I hope as I grow older that I can be half as amazing as you were. You were best friend. I love you so much and miss you dearly. Watch over us! Someday we will meet again !
