  • Mom,
    It saddens me to be writing this. Although I know you are where you want to be I can’t help from being so selfishly sad. Mom, you will be so truly missed. Barry and I couldn’t have asked for a better mother. You loved us through thick and thin no matter what.

    The only pleasure I have right now is knowing that you are no longer suffering. You had suffered long enough. Until we meet again, spread your wings and fly. Go home and be with the lord and reunite with dad. Please Let dad know we love him and miss him too. We all love you mom. God bless.
