As long as l live, you will always walk beside me. I am so grateful for the time we spent together laughing, talking, dancing till the end. As l always told you, you are the strongest woman l have ever known. You left here on your terms. You defied all odds and l truly believe it was love that kept you going to the end. I will hold tight in my soul all the words you shared with me. All the smiles we shared everyday. All the belly laughs we shared and all the tears we shared together. You are and always wiĺl be my hero. I love you Momma. In my soul you will stay.
