Mom, I love you and to say your missed would be an understatement. Thank you to everyone that posted a message and will post later. My mother was an extraordinary person. She gave all she had to be here for us until there was nothing left to give. If you had the pleasure of knowing her or even randomly meeting her, consider yourself blessed. We’ll never know why god chose her to join him so early in her life. But I’m positive she was accepted with open arms. Much like the greeting you would receive when you walked through her doors. Mom, until we meet again, I love you now, I love you always and I will love you forever!

Love, your cousin Carol & Dan Kile
