In loving memory of my Mom, who is irreplaceable. You were loved, liked and respected by all who knew you. A light has gone out for those of us who love you. I miss you already more than words can say, but I know you you will be watching over the family from heaven with Guy, Aunt Norma, Uncle Bob, Grandma and Grandpa and that we will all be together again one day.

You were simply the best Mother anyone could have - I always knew I was loved; supported; protected and safe, You were the wisest woman I knew and I could always count on your counsel and wisdom. The numerous calls and conversations we had everyday can attest to that. I will miss talking, laughing and sharing with you for the rest of my days. You were loved by me and so many others, who are now heartbroken that your light and love have gone out of our lives. We will always love and miss you, but we will carry you in our hearts and you will never be forgotten.
