Mama, I am sorry I couldn’t be there to say goodbye. I think God had his hand in me getting sick because I couldn’t bare to see you leave us. Your video tribute was beautiful just as you were. Inside and out. Fly high with the angels mama. Give Frances, Snaz, Grandma and Grandpa my love. Till we all meet again in heaven. My heart was torn into but I know that we will all rejoice together someday soon. Love from your baby girl, Pam. I love you mama.
