My precious Momma, this has been the hardest week of my life. You were my friend, my mom, my secret keeper, my rock, my everything. I honestly don’t know how to function going forward but I know I need to figure it out and help daddy. You were my glue, my duct tape lol, what am I going to do. Life seems dim now so please watch over us because you know we don’t do well without you. I love you so much and I thank God for giving me you. If they looked the definition of mom up in the dictionary, your picture would be there. I will always carry you with me, our precious memories and love you.
Rachel is my birthday buddy! I always remember waiting for her at our mailbox in the dirt road waiting on her to come by on our birthday! I always had her a card, probably hand made, and she always made me feel like it was the best thing. I have always LOVED having my birthday the same as hers. She was truly a special lady. She was like another momma to me because I spent just as much time at their house as I did mine in the summers. Love you girls and Dwain. It’s so hard losing your momma. I will be praying for all of you daily! ❤️
Dear Becky and family, please know you are in my prayers and much love is sent your way during this trial.
Praying for all of you that God will bring you peace and comfort. LaQuinta.
