She may not have birthed me but she never once treated me like I was anything less than her own child and she showed me the unconditional love and support that I deserved from a mom!!! I don’t know what I will do without her here to push me thru it when I wanna give up!!! But I know you are right by my side every step of every day kicking me in the butt and making sure I never give up again!!! I love you Momma T and you will forever be My Saving Grace!!! Tell daddy I love him and I can’t wait to see all of y’all waiting inside those Pearly Gate for me when I walk through them one day!!!!
