I don't know where to begin as you were and are and always will be everything to me.
Although many miles apart you were always there for me. Your love for me and your grandchildren, Jeremy, Amanda and Alyssa were always known and felt, even across the miles, there was never a doubt in our hearts.
You had many hurdles and challenges throughout your life and yet always took care of everyone else's needs, even in your darkest hours. Your strength always amazed me and you were a true inspiration.
It didn't matter what you yourself was going through at any time, you still had a smile, a kind word and helping hand for others. Your laughter was music to my ears.
Your unconditional love, your gentle touch and never ending support never went unrecognized and unappreciated by me and the kids. You supported me through good and bad times and never judged, never had a negative word to say but always let me know you were there for me in any and all decisions and situations.
You had the patience of a saint and I am so proud to be your daughter and to have the honour of you as my mother.
I'm proud of the person I am today and can proudly and honestly say it was from having a role model as selfless, wonderful and caring as you.
You were truly an angel on earth and you are now my brightest star above.
You may be gone from this world but will never be gone from my heart.
My memories I will carry with me always.
You are now my special angel.
You were the best of the best.
You can now rest after a life time of helping others.
Rest in peace Mom.
I love you and miss you more than words could ever say.
Love You Always
A light from our family is gone
A voice we loved is stilled
A place is vacant in our hearts
Which can never be filled.
We have to mourn the loss of one
We would have loved to keep
But God who surely loved her best
Has finally made her sleep.
After a lifetime of her love and joy
And music to fill our ears
God leaves these wondrous memories
To help us through our tears.
