When we were growing up, our mother was always there for us, whether we needed help or guidance in life.  She was a woman of strong faith and she instilled in us the importance of family, hard work, and living the Christian life. Our mother was a kind, caring, and giving person who always put the needs of her family before her own.  She was a strong woman who faced every challenge in her life with courage and dignity.  Mom was a source of inspiration to us all. Our mother was a true role model.

 

Mom, you will always be in our hearts and we will never forget you.  We love you so much.
