    Mom, will miss you so much. You were a wonderful mother and I couldn’t have asked for a better one. Thank you for being there for me when I needed you. Love and miss you.

    Mom I am truly going to miss you so much. It hurt me so much when I had my hand on your forehead and you took a deep breath and I told you it was ok and then when you took that last deep breath I knew you were gone. I did cry but only for a minute because God put that peace over me and I knew I was going to see you again. You were a true Proverbs 31.

    Mom, when I heard about your passing, my heart sank. It will be hard visiting family members and will feel the pain of you not being there. We have this assurance that you are with Jesus and others who have gone on before. Thank you for your constant prayers. You were a blessing to so many people over the years. You are very much missed. Will see you on the other side. Love you..
