I love you so much, mom. The world is not worthy enough to deserve you, so God took you home where your beautiful light can shine forever, without anyone trying to extinguish it. You were my strength, confidence, mentor, and companion. I miss you dearly...every hour, every day. I hope you are happy and at peace. That is all I ever wanted for you. It is hard losing the only person who loved me unconditionally, accepted me as a person, accepted me the way I look, encouraged me, and took pride in everything I did. I have 41 years with you, but that just didn't seem long enough. Goodbye, mommy. I love you forever.
