I love you so much mama. You were the very best mother that a child could ever ask for. You taught me so many important things In life. I like to think “I got it” mom. You taught me well and you surely loved me well. My heart is broken, but yours is healed and you’re with
Jesus and Doug. I will see y’all again one day. I love you so much mama!❤️
