    Sending out and up lots of love and good thoughts to you, Mom. Truly I would not be the person I am today without your influence throughout my life. So many of my traits and behaviors are due to your influence from a very early age up until your last days. The lessons you taught and the things I learned have been passed on to my daughters, whom I adore as much as you did your kids. Thanks Mom for all that you did – you are missed.
