My Mother was the absolute best mother. She encouraged us to do what we loved to do and said we could accomplish anything as long as we applied ourselves. She was kind and loving to everyone. She was fun, too. Taught me to be a lady, always. I knew this time was coming but am still heartbroken beyond measure. Love you, Mama, and will miss you.
