We love mom! You fought so hard the last weeks of your life. It still doesn't seem real that you are not here. Everything we do in the future will be in your honor. All of the dreams you had, I will try and live out because; I know (or hope) you will be there with me. There will not be a day I will not think of you and miss you!

With all my love....
