    Mom, we were so blessed to have you as our mother. You were the glue that held our family together after dad died. You taught us strong values. Mom, you were one of the most generous and hard-working individuals we ever knew. You opened your heart to all you met and you were loved by so many people. Your zest for life was contagious and you never missed an opportunity to enjoy any outing or adventure that came along-whether it would be spending time with our families or card games with your sisters and friends. Our hearts now have a hole that will never be replaced. We love you so much and will miss you until we meet again in heaven.
