‘Mom fought a brave battle against cancer with the same strength and determination that defined her life. She adored her family, particularly her three granddaughters, and devoted her life to them. Mom and MeMe, we love you with all of our heart and are heartbroken without you. We thank God for the precious gift He gave each of us in you. You left us wonderful memories which we will always cherish, and your undying spirit which forces us to press on toward our eternal goal, where we will reunite with you someday in heaven. We love you, Mama!!’
