    “I like to think that the values and lessons that moms teach their children make moms immortal as they influence lives over generations.”
    I think about the legacy your Mom is leaving behind. She taught a lot to her children and her children’s children.
    Think about all the generations that have been and will be blessed by the life she lived.”
    Your mother was the type of person who inspired integrity in those around her; she encouraged others to be the best people they could be. That’s reflected in your life.”
    Your Mother loved her family with a fierce love you were all so blessed
    Blessings Kathy
