    I cannot express what your Mom meant to me. I have so many wonderful, beautiful memories of my childhood, and most of the involve your Mom and family. I will never forget her beautiful smile, when I saw her right before she died, she was smiling. She is in Heaven, smiling down, knowing that she truly raised a beautiful, loving close family.
    I love you all so much.

    Love as powerful as your mother’s for you leaves its own mark. To have been loved so deeply, even though the person who loved us is gone, will give us some protection forever.”
