My momma gave us so many memories to cherish. She is a one of a kind woman who loved with everything in her. She has always had to fight for everything in life. She would and has gave the shirt off her back to anyone and would always have the best advice I don’t know how I’m going to go on without her but I know I have to because I promised to not fall apart. I know you are resting easy my momma. Love you always. Till I see you again
