Dear Mom:
Its been 30 days since you left us and I already know my life has changed forever. I miss our morning e-mails, our visits and I miss you! I hope that you are with all those family members who passed before you. I hope that Donny was there to greet you along with Grandma and Grandpa. Your life has been up and down with challenges both physically and emotionally. I'm so happy that you had Al for the past 40 years. Know that you were truly loved and it is my hope that you are at peace now and no more oxygen, medications, medical appointments that I know you hated to go to!! No more difficulties breathing and I hope your heart is like brand new again. I love you and wish you peace for all eternity!
Love your youngest, Kitten (Bonny)
