    Beautiful Mom,
    Words can’t express how we will miss you every day that we remain behind. Thank you for being the best, most caring, thoughtful, kind, loving mother a girl could ever dream of having. I am so fortunate that you were the person nurturing my soul and supporting me in all of life’s challenges. Severn is so blessed that she was able to spend so much of her childhood in your loving arms. We will cherish the beautiful memories of you helping us become us.
