Mom, just wanted you to know how much I will miss you! I loved you like a second "Mother" and have always thought of you as one. Now you can rejoin with Mr. Chapa and Deb, and look down upon us to make sure we all stay safe and sound. I know you and my Mother have met up already and are finally free of all that ailed you both!! I love you and miss you!! Forever & Ever. Charlene
