Mom, we wish Heaven had a phone so we can call and talk with you, like we did everyday. I think of you in my silence. You left us peaceful memories. Your Love and Strength is still our guide. God has you in his arms and We have you in our Hearts. Our Family’s Love and Strength has been broken and nothing seems the same, but as God calls each of us. We will be together again!!! LOVE YOU MOM. You were the diamond hidden beneath all the coal and rubble. A true gift given by God. We loved your golden heart and all the care that you had for us and others above all else. You will always be missed more than there are stars in the galaxy. LOVE YOU NANA!
