Mom, a part of you has passed away, but much is carried within us.
This may be a final tribute, a day to celebrate your life and say goodbyes,
But it is not final.
Every day we will celebrate you, in some way, just by the virtue of how you shaped our lives.
Our Mother, Grandma, Great Grandma, Aunt, friend and inspiration.
