    It is heartbreaking to here of the loss of your mom, she was first a woman who loved and lived for her children and grandchildren and secondly she was a woman who had amazing strength and kindness I always think of her when I fold t-shirts because she taught me the proper way to do this, you all were so blessed to be able to call this woman Mother. A light shines bright in heaven tonight.
