I remember my mother as a firecracker. She taught me so much and the sacrifices her and my dad made are immeasurable. Looking back as an adult and being a mom myself, I see all that they did without to provide for us.
She was my best friend and even with the disease presenting itself, did her best to show me how much she loved me every chance she could. I am beyond grateful for the life and love she gave us. I love you and will miss you beyond measure mommy.
