I knew who it was immediately.
She taught me without words how to treat people.
I saw how she showed her love for family and friends.
It made me want to be just like her.
I saw her strength and courage through the hardships we faced together.
She always ensured that my sister, Elizabeth and I, were well taken care of.
Physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
I don’t thank her enough for helping me become who I am today.
When I was a little girl I told people that my Mom was my hero.
I still want to be just like her.
She embraced change because she had to.
She put the most important people first in her life and she was a fierce protector for us.
We always knew that everything would be alright.
I will always feel a swell of pride, intense love and wonder at the love my Mom shows me.
There is no way I can show how much I love and appreciate her.
