I meet mom 13 years ago when I started dating Scott, I started calling her mom that day and never stopped. She was always there for me when I needed her from a shoulder to cry on or just to listen when I needs to talk. I miss her so much at least she is no longer in any pain and is in a better place. Love u mom and may u rest in peace.
