I don’t even know where to begin to put into words all of what you’re experiencing or how to get through this immense loss. All I can tell you is to cherish those moments in your days when memories of her hits you. Remember her smile, her laugh and the love she had for each of you. Continue to speak of her and share your stories. She taught me so much about family, unconditional love and she helped me in my spiritual walk. I will miss her terribly but I know she’s always with me. Until we meet again Tia Mary❤️
