I’m not going to lie I was a little selfish and didn
t wanna let you go. You fought for me in the beginning, And I fought for you in the end. The lives you leave behind will never be the same. Your impact was overwhelming. We were spoiled, that’s for sure. The memories, the tears and the laughter, we will always hold near and dear. There is no ever after and never a goodbye, It’s always I’ll see you later. When all is said and done, you were our mother, our grandmother and most of all, our best friend. In all that you’ve instilled in us, we will all be fine in the end. So for now, it’s not goodbye, Its so long until we see you again.
The family would like to thank the doctors that fought very hard to give her all the extra years with her loved ones along with the hospices nurses that came in and kept her comfortable and also to all that had reached out and checked on her as well as the family through their trying times.
