    You were my angel here on this globe. Now your an angel in God’s kingdom. I miss you so much, momma. I forever cherish the time we had together, but I know I’ll see you again and it will be such a happy day. Your strength lives within me. I’m taking care of daddy, but he is strong. You were a blessing in my life and a joy to spend time with. Everything you went through And you never gave up. I only hope to be half the woman you were to all of us. Rejoice, sing, dance, and smile down at us. I feel your presence all around me and it’s helping. I know you haven’t really left us. I miss your beautiful face. I love you, Ma! Blowing kisses up to you!!
