You gave up your retirement to raise me and take care of me. I think finally having a girl was good for you. You loved playing with my hair, dressing me up, taking cute little photos of me when i was little. You was always my number 1 supporter. And gave me great advice and i wish i wrote it all down. Thank you for being my Mother. I’m gonna miss you so much. But I know your always with me. ❤️
