You don't know how many times I've tried to do this. I just couldn't get the right words out. I love and miss you, so do Amber and the boys. Before me meeting Amber you were my best friend still is. I didn't think you were that bad. I just hate I couldn't get back in time to tell you I love you. I miss you so much. I want you to come back to us but then I think I don't want to see you go through all that pain. What I miss is seeing you on Facebook and you saying " what you doing " lol. Love and miss you so much mom R.I.P. MOM TILL WE ARE EACH OTHER AGAIN”
