Your youngest Child

February 19, 2013

There will never be words to express what you meant to me. You taught me how to raise my children, you gave me a work ethic that enabled me to make something of myself. You made us who we are. You are one of the strongest women I ever knew. I feel like part of me has been taken away. I love you

Mama, I love you and miss you so very much. Your unconditional love and support were unmatched. You taught us the meaning of love and forgiveness. Michael, Donna nor myself would be the people we are now without your loving guidance. Heaven is a little brighter now with you there. Though my heart is broken I take comfort knowing that you are with God. I love you so much!!!!
