  1. Mom you will be missed by so many. You are my mother-in-law, but I am alway proud to call you “Mom”. You always gave your love and support to all of us no matter what road we were traveling. You are with Pop now and I know you are both healthy and happy again. Give him a hug and kiss for me too. Enjoy your eternal life like you did your life here with us. Things will never be the same without you, but I find comfort knowing that you didn’t suffer and have found peace. I love you and miss you very much.
