I miss you Mommy. I don’t wanna imagine living another 40+ years without you. I will never be able to fill the huge void in my heart. I was lucky to have had such an amazing mother. You were more than an exceptional mother, you were my friend, my confidant, and always my biggest fan. Im proud to have gotten to call you Mom. I hope and pray Heaven is everything you imagined and more. I hope you knew how much i loved you and how much im going to miss your funny dances and songs you sang and jokes you told but most of all i will miss hugs and your kisses and your goofy laugh. I will never forget you and i love you to infinity and beyond….tell ruthie i miss her and hug her really tight for me.. and ill see you both soon. 🤍
