We love you so much Mom!! Alan, the boys, grandkids and I am going to miss you so much. May your new wings help you fly high where there is no pain, there is a perfect mind, and a young body. Catch lots of fish, plant thousands of trees, have the best flower and vegetable garden ever, and may any animal that needs help come to you for love. I will be there with you when God calls me home!!
Thank you for all the wonderful memories. We will miss you Mom!
