Mom, I couldn’t have asked for a better mother. You always knew what was best for me . I always felt loved and protected. . As I grew we became good friends . You had this wonderful quality of making me smile and laugh even thru the sad times. You were actually very funny with all your silly quotes that I will miss hearing ! I remember asking you when I was a child how much do you love me? You told me up to the sky and down to the sea & ships which describes our relationship and how much I love you. May you be at peace in heaven . I will truly miss you . Love you always , Patti
