I treasure every step I took with my mom. I know she is resting and is with her best friend. I will always treasure the memories and move on. I know within my heart I done all I could do for her. I can rest in peace because I know my mom was pleased with me. Rest mom and just look for me when I enter those pearly gates. Love you and Dad so much.
