    Mom was my rock, my best friend and so funny. She could be a smartass just like me. Mom it was so hard to see you decline so fast in 10 weeks it was so hard on you and unfair. We all knew what you were heading to but was not ready and our hearts were shattering as you slipped away. Didnt expect to loose you so fast and so young. I keep wanting to call you to see if your ok and my heart aches for you all over again. You were so strong and a wonder women. Everyone says I look like you but hope I can be as strong as you always. Love you mom you will be forever missed.
