Mom I fall asleep with tears and wake up with tears because I feel empty inside. I cherish every moment I have spent with you through out the years. Even though my heart aches and hurt I know you are in a much better place. Sometimes I saw the pains and aches you were having but yet I continued to pray to god to keep you with me. I did not mean to be selfish but how can a daughter not want their mom around for ever. We have spent so many years shopping and celebrating your birthdays. I will always remember you singing happy birthday to me every year. If only I can lay next to you and get one more hug it would put a smile on my face. The one thing I know for sure is your love for me. Today is the saddest day of my life as I struggle to say good bye to the most beautiful mom ever. There is no other mother who can take your place no matter how far apart we are. Your children, grand children, and son-in-law will always love you. I must say goodbye until we meet again.

Sis, You said everything that I wanted to say. God I miss her too so much. There are no words just emptiness and a void that is irreplaceable. I miss her with every breath that I take. I know I

Thank you for welcoming me into your family. I know how much you loved Michael and having your blessing for us to get married meant a lot to me. Thank you for loving my children the way you did. I promise to keep your memory alive. Your great grandkids won’t forget you. I’m going to miss yelling at Gabriel for running into your room when he would misbehave lol because he knew that you would always protect him and help him hide under your covers. We love you and miss you so much. I know you are with God and are finally pain free. Rest in peace grandma.

My deepest condolences to all the family and beloved friends. I was fortunate to have had the opportunity to know her and she was a warm, loving, family oriented person. She had her fun side and her strict side; she always shared great advice as well. She will always be remembered and loved. May God grant you all peace and comfort in this time.

Rest in Paradise Grandma. Although you left us and we didn’t get to say goodbye, I know you’re looking after us from heaven. I’m at peace knowing that you’re no longer in pain and suffering. You’ll always be loved and never forgotten. It’s a short video but one of my happiest memories of you; watching you sing and dance with you family and friends. Love always, your Princess
