    You all know how much I cared for your momma!  She has always had a special place in my heart.  No matter how "tough" she was on the outside, I always knew about the big softie that she really was on the inside. My hugs and prayers go out to each and every one of you.  I'm  sure she is watching over you today as she always has!
