A Tribute to a Special Mother Back through the years when we were young when God called our father home, He left a special Angel to raise seven children on her own. Times must have been so hard for her; but not once did she let it show, throughout the years she stood by us with a heart worth more than gold. Suddenly God whispered her name and called His Angel home, but not until she got her wish to see her children grown. Our hearts will not forget you mom, till our life on earth must end, we softly pray that God will lead us back to you again. Forever in our hearts, daughters: Brenda, Jose, Elaine, Betty and Dianne; sons: Ron and Jimmy (deceased).
