In Loving memory of my mom Donelda LaRue (Donna Warren). It's been a year today you took your last road trip and how I wish I was your driver. You drove to God's majestic garden where you found there was no more pain and suffering. There isn't a day that goes by that my heart does not cry and miss your beautiful smile, the fun times we had, our daily talks, dinners, road trips, even the occasional disagreement and hearing your voice calling me "boy." I will always cherish our last two years together and will give anything to have you here for one more minute. But I know now you are an angel riding shotgun by my side; always my mom and forever my friend.
