Mom, you are the glue that holds our family together. You have always taught us to be kind, to love and respect others. We didn’t always get what we wanted but you always made sure we had what we needed. You always took us on some fun and crazy adventures and making memories that we will keep in our hearts forever and pass on to our children.

We don’t know how we will go on without you, but you will always be in our hearts, guiding us and never leaving us.

We love you!
