Mama, you taught us so much. You taught us to love the Lord with all our hearts. You taught us to be kind and respectful to each other and to others. You had so much knowledge and wisdom, but you were always so humble. My dearest mom, I will cherish your memory forever. Mama, you were a tough little nut to crack and I will always respect your determination and will-power. You taught me to be a strong independent woman and I will love you forever. Your eldest child.
