I could have never asked for a better mother, friend, or supporter. You prepped us our whole lives for this moment and I know that you wouldn’t have left us if we was not ready. I still can’t believe your gone. I walk in your door hoping to see you. When I am at your house I look at the door waiting for you to walk in. I know your now in heaven with your dad and you will always be watching over us. I still have so much life to experience that I need you to be there for me with. I will forever and always love and miss you.
