She was A strong, hardworking, dedicated wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, daughter, friend to all who knew her. She would sit & talk for hours. I miss all of our daily talks & hearing her laughter. I miss everything about her. She wasn't just my mother but my best friend, anytime I needed to talk or just needed her for comfort, advice etc she was always there. I miss you sooo much, gone to soon but you will never be forgotten. I love you & miss you sooo much with each passing day.
