Mom I love you. Miss you so much already. Taking care of you day after day and night you kept me going. It's going to be so hard not having you right by my side. We was roomies. When you spend so much time with you as I did it's heart breaking. Knowing you will never be right next to me breaks my heart. But I know you will be with me every day. Now your at peace that makes me happy. You will never be forgotten and always in my heart. You was always there for me. Your love was unconditional to me.
