Mom,
From the first time we met you in Florida to the last time we saw you we always said “ You look good Mom” and she always replied “I know!”
Quite the lady! Quite the daughters who loved and cared for her. She was lucky to have the two of you plus Richie to make her smile.
Now she can go be with Pop!
