My Mama was such a sweet lady. She always tried her best to find the good in everyone. For all that knew her (and if you didnt know her then you sure missed out on a few good laughs) got a good laugh for sure. She was so funny and sometimes wasnt even trying to be and oh the stories that she would tell..lol. I love my Mama so very much and my heart is so broken but I know that she is in a much better place. She is no longer suffering and will no longer have the life aggravated out of her. My Mama has always been very special to me and we have made so many wonderful memories together. RIP my sweet angel.
