    Mom this is definitely something I never knew hurt so much. You have always been there for all of us kids and helped us when we needed it. Whether it be monetary or just to listen to us and give us advice. They’ve always said it is the hardest time loosing your mom and I now see what they meant. For all those times I just fussed and all the times you would calm us down in situations I truly thank you. You have always been the rock in this family of ours, as messy as it was sometimes. Lol. I thank you mom. I thank you that no matter what happened or what was said you still showed such love and forgiveness. I want you to know now how much I love you and are going miss you. No one can ever take the place of loving mother. Even though our hearts are broken right now, I’m so thankful and happy for you to finally be with your children, dad and your mom and dad. You always told us that you were suppose to go before your children and it took a lot out of you each time you lost one. I’m so happy that I will never see your heart yearn for your children anymore. We will all join you soon and will forever love and miss you until then. 🥲😭💝💖💞
