She loved the moon and now every time we see it, we will see our Mom. She taught us to love the little things in life and love everybody. She fought so hard to get through what she did. We will cherish every moment we shared together. We will love you forever, Mom! Rest in peace and watch over us kids and Mawmaw. We love you so much! We will see you again."
