My mom was a very special person to me and others. I miss her dearly. She was always there for me and supported my decisions. How many hours did she sit and watch me play basketball and softball?! She was a wonderful grandmother to my kids - she made sure that when they were together that it was special. I know you and Gram are together watching over us. I love you Mom!

I remember some of the best days of my life would be going to grandma’s house. If I spent the night, I’d get up at the crack of dawn and play mahjong matching games where she would already be. Despite being an early riser, she always seemed to have the energy to ensure her grandkids were loved.

I love you, Mom-Mom
