Mama, I miss you so much. You were the best mama anyone could ever have. I cherish the memories we have made together - going out for a meal, visiting friends and our alone time. I will always hold you in my heart and one day we will meet again. I'm so glad your pain and suffering is over and you are in the arms of your Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. I know you longed to be with your Mama again. I love you forever.
