Mom you are so missed. I could not have asked for a better Mother in law. You and Dad welcomed me into this family 46 years ago. Your love and support over the years has taught me how to be a Mom, Grandmother and a mother in law. You and Dad will always be in that special place in my heart. Missing you but now it’s your time to rest , you’ve done your job here on earth. Love you, Heather
