Dear Mom,

It saddens me to think of all the fun we had growing up, it hurts my heart to lose Dad and see you suffer, but it breaks my heart that you’re no longer here!

I will always miss our drives, card games, shopping and trips together. You were, are and always will be loved by us and all whose lives you touched.

With Godspeed may you be reunited with your true love and true home.

You are forever in ours hearts.

We love you!

Jeffrey, Jennifer, Brayden and Serena,
