I need my mom now, more than I ever thought I could need her, and I know I will need her even more as time goes on. My mom was a very loving, strong, brave, brillant soul, that others can’t begin to measure. Though times were rough, I never truly recognized what she has done for me and my family. She put up more of a battle than anyone can ever imagine and I know her soul is one of the brightest in God’s heaven. I miss her deeply and recognize more each day how great her love was for me and my family. I know I would never be the strong, intellectual, and independent women that I am today, if it was not for my mom. I see many people take life for granted and never appreciate the sense of life’s happiness, and she has taught me that. Because of her, I will never give up and i will pray for the day when i can hold her so tightly. It has only, but already been three years, and it is very hard to imagine that I will never see her for many years to come. But i have accepted this and i know she is in a place that our world will never compare too. This is what makes me strong, because God is taking care of her fully. She is happy now and looking down on me, very content with what she has made in her time down here. I still smell her and can feel her arms around me. I still dream of seeing her and of the ways she has loved me and protected me growing up. I miss here greatly. Mom I love you and wish you never had to go- love, your daughter, jennifer

Roxane, my dearest sister. It is so unfortunate that so many miles and so many years were always caught in the middle of our ability to share the so many opportunities we missed out on together, I will always remember how we as siblings grew up and share so many good times, and I always was so proud of you when you left high school and began to attend a nursing program and to obtain your license. As siblings we all shared a tough family life together with no economic advantage nor a home that we could be proud of , but it also made us to be strong throughout our adulthood lives. I’m so proud of you for being so very strong in your life. I miss you and I love you. May God bless you and give you peace and comfort. Love your brother Paul
