    To Mom: There are no words to describe the sadness and sorrow I am feeling right now. It brings me comfort knowing you are up there reunited with the people you loved most in the world. We will, one day, all be reunited again. You lived a long and very happy life, mom. I can only hope my life is as fulfilling to me as yours was to you. You will be with me always. RIP Mamma. Until we meet again. ❤️
