Dear Mom,
It’s been a year since you’ve left us and not a day goes by that we don’t think or talk about you. We miss your infectious smile and personality. When you left us we weren’t sure how life would go on, but as a family we’ve pulled through and we live our life with you in our thoughts. Until we meet again.

Love,
Marshall, The Kids, Popo and Family
