Mama I'm gonna miss u so much. This still doesn't feel real. I always expected to be old and grey before I lost u...I got the grey part already but still way to young..I'll never forget your kisses, your hugs and your comforting words whenever I needed them. I'm also gonna miss your shoulders that I used to cry on when Mony passed away and when daddy almost passed away...Words can't express the hurt that I'm feeling right now and there will always be a void in my soul that will never be filled.. Rest in peace mama and I will see you again one day. I love you always mama. :(
