Mom was one of those Angels who didn't live in heaven while she was on this earth,but the earth here has it"s share of Angels too to watch over all of us. They're the people whose kindness makes earth seem like heaven, and one of the dearest was her. I Love her dearly and always will keep her in my heart.God needed her much more than me being her daughter. She taught me how to be kind, loving and thoughtful and encouraged me to be only the best I can be. I love you mom always.
