My mother was funny,strong and had a beautiful soul. She loved her family and her garden and the Mets! She was an awesome nana and mother. She would help anyone she could. I will miss my mom, and I will do my best to keep her spirit alive always, and remember the life lessons she taught me as I try and go on. Love you mom....
