    Rest in paradise momma. You’ve left a huge whole in my heart, I miss your voice, your smile. You will never know how much having you as my mother blessed me. You taught us how to survive and grow into the women we are today. Your life was full of ups and downs, watching you struggle these few years was so hard, but knowing today your healthy, happy and whole has definitely made my heart smile a little through the pain. Love you momma all me heart!

    I dreamed that you and I walked through the woods together, you were so happy. You were running into your loved one’s as we proceeded down the path. I said I wasn’t ready. You said, yes you are. I wake up and you’re gone. Gone to the most amazing place in this universe. You’re never gonna be alone again, never going to have to be in pain, and Never will you be neglected. My heart has a huge hole in it that can never be refilled. You’re forever my bestfriend and I miss you dearly and look forward to the day we meet again. Love forever Moms.
