Dear Mommy,

I have missed you every second of each day since you have gone on to the next chapter of your life. I know you are with Grandma, Grandpa and Uncle Steven and having a wonderful time dancing because you have no more pain. Not only were you my mommy but my best friend, I have enjoyed and will treasure all the time we have spent together through our years. I love you to the moon and back and giving butterfly kisses. I will see you again someday. I know you will be watching over me, Caren and Ellen from the Heavans above!

I Love You XO❤️
