Mom, words can never express my broken heart. I miss you already, but I know that someday I will see you again, in heaven as God has promised us all. Till then darling, rest in God's loving arms. You were a loving Mother and my very best friend in the whole world. I'll love you eternally until we meet again. Your loving daughter, Rachel

"A very special lady who inspired me more than she ever knew. I will miss her dearly. I cant express the sadness I feel for the family. I feel as I know them all personally from the stories she told me. I am so blessed to have been a part of her life. Sincerely, Cynthia Mangum."
