You were my closest friend both in good times and bad. You were the most honest, kind, and sincere person that I ever met. You always knew how to make me smile when I was down. I'll never forget your hip shuffle before you were going to say something to someone. It always brought a smile to my face. I can't begin to describe how much you meant too me. I will never forget you. You will always hold a special place in my heart. I hope that God has a special place in for you heaven. You are truly the one special person that made so many people happy. God Bless You.

My mother left this world very peacefully. She was a beautiful woman, that touched a lot of lives. She will be greatly missed. I am finding comfort in some of the fond memories I have of her, her smile, and quick wit.
