    Mom I will miss you with all of my heart. You were always there for me and when my mom passed it meant even more. My dad used to tease you and enjoyed all those card games. He loved your nick name for him. You raised an amazing man for me to marry and gave sisters and a brother to love as well. Rest with Jesus sweet mom. We love you.
