My husband died and even though she was going through so much her self, she told me I will be here for you. Even though we were so far apart, I felt so close to her at that time. I will miss calling and telling you what's going on. Sometimes you did not want to hear it but I would just keep talking. You are so missed by me momma. I will continue to be the best daughter I can be. Love you , Miriam
