Online Condolences


  1. My Mother was awesome and I miss her everyday Although I took good care of her for about 2 years before I got sick and needed to have my right leg amputated below the knee. I was in a rehabilitation facility when she passed I got to see her before she died and was able to attend her funeral. My sister didn’t even call me to inform me of my Mother’s passing, I heard it from my cousin. My Mom wasn’t rich by any stretch but she left me something that my sister promptly kept, she must have needed it more than I did with my one leg.. But I got to see my mom before she died I got to hug and kiss her and tell her that I love her. Bye MOM
