Mom, you are my rock and my strength. Thank you for being the best mother a daughter could have. I just hope I can take the path that is ahead of me now and make you proud. You are with daddy and together my guardian angels. You are so greatly missed and loved.

What a special lady your mom was. She was always so pleasant and friendly to us. Heaven is a little brighter tonight with the arrival of this special angel. Love and prayers, Kate
