I love you so much Mom. You have always been my biggest supporter and you have taught me so much. I will hold the lessons you have taught me close to my heart. You were an inspiration. A truly strong, stubborn, sassy woman who I admired every day. Even if I didn't always show it. I am so grateful that I got to have you in my life. I wouldn't wish for anything else. Thank you mom. Thank you for everything.
