To one of the most wonderfu women in my life, I will truly miss her each day but I know that she sits on my shoulder as my guardian angel. Our family will get through this as we remember all the wonderful memories we have of her.

To my beloved mother (ma) I will miss your wit, humor, and loving ways. I will also miss my weekly visits with you and Bonanza and popcorn. Shirley and I will carry on but there will always be that special place in our hearts that will always be empty except for the wonderful memories of you.
