Mom, you will always be my first love and I miss so much already. The roller coaster of highs and lows I have gone through since you passed, has been a very difficult ride for me. But because of your strength that you gave to me, I will get through this difficult time. I will be forever changed. It comforts me knowing you are in no pain and now that you are with your other two loves my Dad and Brother. Have no worries for Donna, I will be here and I will take care of her. You know I am crying, so keep dad calm and I will explain some time far far into the future when I see all of you again.
Mom and Dad since both of you gave me so much strength, I would like to offer some of that strength to those of you I see in the next couple days to help you in your time of sorrow.
Mom, I'm gonna love you forever and ever, forever and ever, amen
I met Ruth 2yrs ago. Her and her family moved into the apt building i was in. From the first day we met i knew we were gona be close friends. She always made me laugh. We always went outside for a smoke together. Im thinking somedays we were inseparable. I can still hear her cursing at her games she played on her phone. Ruth helped me out alot and i will never forget that. She had a heart of gold. I will never forget her but i am gona miss her so much. R.I.P Ruth. Till we meet again. Love always Rhonda. 💖💖
