  • Dearest Momma,
    Life has thrown us another curve ball and taken another Angel home, I know you were tired and ready to be with daddy again.
    You made him happy when he called you home, 50 years together is a long time together.
    Getting use to coming to the hospital to sit with you, it hurt my heart to see my mom so sick and helpless. I know you were tired and ready to be with daddy again.
    You have earned your wings so fly high. No more pain, no more suffering. You are free from it all, you have paid your dues, now its time to RIP so until we are together again watch over us and keep us safe.

    Love you always and forever
