You have been the best mother a person could have. You were a lady in every sense of the word. I miss you terribly. I really do, but I know you are at peace with Jesus now. I am humbled how He answered my prayers to be with you when He took you home. I love you mom and still wish you were here, but you are at peace now. One day by God's infinate love and grace who sent His only begotten son to die on the cross so that all who come to Him shall have salvation, we will all be together again. I love you mom. I thank God for you. There is no greater love on earth than the love of a mother God placed in her heart. I was grateful to God to have you as my mother. Love you mom dearly. Until we meet again...Love your daughter always and forever, Brenda
