To my mom
You are truly missed. I'm glad we were able to grow together and experience life together. You always made sure I was ok no matter what. You showed me so much strength and love. Spoiled rotten, even at 48...lol. You had the biggest and most giving heart. Wrap your arms around me and place a kiss upon my cheek. I will continue to make you proud. I know you will continue to have my back. I will make sure Pawpaw, Tara, Ash'Lee, Ant, Jaylen and Aliyah are good. You got me and I got them.
