We love you Mom, and we're gonna miss you so much. You were our glue that held us all together. Our holidays & even just our everyday living is going to be so different without you. Our hardest days are ahead of us, & don't know how we are gonna move on with this big void in our lives, but we know we have to for dad & each other. The only comfort I get in all this, is that I know you are up there in God's loving arms celebrating with your only beloved son Gilbert. We will all be together again someday, until then, May you now Rest In Peace my beautiful mother.
Love & Miss You,
From your loving daughter & son-in-law
Linda & Bobby
