Rest easy, Momma. You did your job well, using your amazing strength to care for your family until you decided it was time for us to make it on our own. You are my mother, my friend and my number one fan! You will never be forgotten, as long as long as any one of us draws breath. Until we meet again, enjoy your special place in heaven and watch over us. Though you taught us well, we will count on you to keep us on track and gently nudge us in the right direction if we lose our way. Thank you for who you are and what you have done for me throughout my life. I will always love you and cherish our time together. Love, your son, David
