    I will miss you so much mommy! You meant the world to me, and my world just won’t be the same without you in it. My only solace is that you are no longer in any pain. Rest well with all the angels momma, and I’m sure Jesus was just as excited to see you as you were to see Him for the first time! I will always hold you close to my heart. I love you so much!
