Always be loved and missed 💔 always
I love you momma
I know you are in heaven now and free of your demons. You were such a caring loving person. We know the real person you were and like all of us we all have our own issues. I hope you never thought you weren’t loved because you were and always will be. I will always remember the last time I seen you a few weeks ago at your Mom’s. You were leaving as I was coming. You gave me a hug and kiss and said I love you and I said same back. That was our last words. God Bless You. Prayers to all my family
