My mommy was the best mommy a girl could ask for. She was loving and caring. She raised 5 of her 7 children as a single parent. She worked hard to give us a roof over our heads. She wasn’t only loving a caring to us, she was that way with everyone she met. I’m sending you hugs mommy. I love your forever and always.
