I will miss talking with my mother!! She was a Great Mom and Grandma. She was always there for us kids. She was a kind caring person. I will miss her fried chicken, cornbread, and pineapple upside down cake that she made me on my birthdays!! She worked hard to provide for all of us and we never went without Love, Food, Clothing, or Shelter. She was there to pick us up when we were down, and always quick with a joke. She took us to our games, was involved in our schools and provided a good moral compass for us all. I miss her soooo much!! She had a long battle with her health conditions, but her suffering has ended. She was and will always be LOVED !!
