To the best mother I can ever appreciate. She has taught me to cook, crafts ,sewing and so much more. She had a awesome hook when she threw shoes at us and they went around corners and hit us . She taught me to love my kids and family and always be independent and strong. I owe everything to her and she will always be with me . I am honored to have parents married so long, and right to the end they truly loved each other. Love you and miss you, but I know you will always be watching.
Love you mom,
Maryann
