Your mom was one strong lady. She stayed in there! She always made me feel like a part of the family whenever I saw her. She often sent me a card & always asked about my family.
There will always be a whole in your heart but hang on to your memories to help heal!
You all are in my heart & prayers!
Loads of love & sympathies,
Dot. Decker
