Mom we will miss you everyday for the rest of our lives! You were the most inspirational person to me and you were always there for me. Your love was boundless and your compassion for people always amazed me. Words could never convey the feeling of losing you in my life and I know you are still watching over me. The world was a better place because you were in it and everyone that ever met you saw your light. We never have enough time together and I know we did not, but the time we had was always quality time! I love you with all my heart and miss just picking up the phone to text or call you!

God Bless,
Marty
