    I love and miss you soooo much Momma! There are absolutely no words that can even begin to come close to describe how much I miss you every second of everyday! I’m so glad I got to spend almost every day with you these last 6 months & I got to take you out to the casino & other places! I will forever cherish every memory we have! I just wish I could hug you and tell you how much you mean to me and how much I love you just 1 more time!!
