Mama, no words can express how broken hearted I am that you left me but I know you're pain free and you have a glorified body in heaven! I will always love and miss you so much I'm so lost and empty inside without you. I just wish I had one more day with you to let you know how I love you! You leave behind so many cherished memories that I will always hold close within my heart! I promise I won't let anyone forget you especially our beautiful grandbabies! I'm not worrying about you know because I know you're fine and I know in time I will be to! Rest easy beautiful! Love you forever and a day your loving daughter Lisa!
