Mom-Mom, I still can't believe your really gone. My heart is beyond broken and will remain that way until I see you again. I'm blessed that I was able to see you everyday after I was done work and that Quentin and Margaret May had  the chance to know and be with you. My afternoons will not be the same anymore. You taught me so much in my 32 years on this earth. I will NEVER forget you. I love you to the moon and back. May you Rest In Peace. "See you on the other side."
