I love you, Mom,
You are who I looked up to growing up.
You were there for me through all my ups and downs, and
Through all my pregnancies, and the one in the room with me to see
your first grandbaby born. You guided me, gave me advice, helped me though life.
You were my best friend. I cherish all of our coffee times together and a life time of memories.
I love you so much and was so blessed to have had you.
Your daughter, miss Priss forever.
