Hi Momma. I can't believe I'm saying that here. I miss you already. I had some jokes I was going to tell you next time we saw you. This all happened so quick. I miss your jokes, your humor, your laugh. This Covid flu messed up so much. It made this worse not seeing you the last few months. I am so glad me, Bernie and Chris were by your side when God called you home. I'm convinced you waited for us. We love you so much"more than you'll ever know" 😊❤️ Hug Dady and Amy for us sweet Angel 🙏

Sorry about the upside down one. Not sure how that happened. Trying to find a way to edit it.
