She was a beautiful mother and I will never be able to get over this. Its a tragedy. My best friend is no longer on her two feet smiling and being my buddy. My mother was my biggest supporter on so much and I loved her for that. I’ll never forget the day she told me she knew I was who I was at a very young age, and that it didn’t bother her because she loved me anyways.
That women was everything to me😓, until we meet again, I love you
