Mom, I will miss you so much. You were my rock and my best friend. Your the best mom in this whole wide world. I will love you forever. I will miss our weekly if not daily phone calls to each other. You will always be in my heart everyday until I am reunited with you in heaven above.

So sorry about your mom. Wish we could be at the service but we are in Williamstown, KY. We often think of how much your mom enjoyed Micheal's rendition of "Achy Breaky Heart" at Kim and Tom's wedding. Know that our thoughts and prayers are with you at this time.
