We will love, miss , and cherish every second we made with her. I'll never forget her loving touch or her sweet smile or all the times she's made me laugh. . God gave me the perfect mother and I know he's only made heaven a more perfect place by having her with him now. She will be so deeply missed but always remembered as my mother and my friend. I loved her so much and I'm so happy she was mine for as long as I did have her. My memories of her and her smile will live forever in my heart. She deserves nothing less than HEAVEN. I will love, and miss her with all my heart every minute of everyday, foralways and forever.......to me she'll always be my perfect Mother....

There are no words to express my sorrow,to try would just be an understatement. My mother is the most kind,loving,and sweetest person I have ever known. I know now she is in heaven smiling, and in no more pain surrounded by pure love and joy.

I will LOVE and MISS her every day of my life,till I take my last breath...Mom you will be forever Loved and always cherrished and NEVER forgotten.
