Mom, you may not be with me in body, but you will always be with me in my heart. I love you and miss you. You gave me so much through the years that I can never thank you enough. I can only hope that I can be an exemplary example of your giving spirit and kindness to others. Thank you for being my mother! I know that God is holding you in his arms. Rest in peace...
