I love you momma and I am so lost without you. I don’t know how to be the rock you were for our family. I cry everyday because all I want to do is pick up the phone and ask you how you feel today. Nothing will ever be the same. I am happy that you aren’t hurting anymore and that you have started your new journey. And don’t worry I will keep us together.
