There are way too many memories for me to chose just one. My mother was my everything. She lived for her kids. Anyone that knew her, knew that she put us above all else. I loved her more than my next breath. Living in this world without her is the hardest thing I will ever have to do. I will try to live up to her expectations and carry on her legacy. Be strong, and always.... put family first.
