Mom my days are getting harder and harder without you. I love and miss you so much. I'm trying to hold it together but, it's so hard. My heart hurts so bad. I think I' can fill a river, with all the tears I've cried. But I know you are having the time of your life in heaven. I know you have come to see me, bc I know all that's happening is not nobody else. You just enjoy your new life in heaven with being whole again and pain free and able to walk again. I Love You My Beautiful Angel!!!! Love Bev

Mom I will always love ❤️ you. I can’t put into words the hurt I’m feeling. It’s like someone ripped my heart out. I just wish I could hug you and kiss you one more time. But I know your not hurting and no more pain. Your dancing with the angels. I wait for that day to see you again. Until then give everyone a hug and kiss from me. I Love you 💕
Love always,Betty
