“We are reminded how precious life is, no matter how we have conducted ourselves, or disappoint each other, we are family, and we sometimes need to remember that when we lose one, we lose a piece of ourselves, and in this case, we lose a piece of history that cannot be replaced. We love you Mom, you will be immortal because each of us takes a piece of you and pass it down through our children, and you will forever be remembered. As I always said to you, and as I said to you this morning, behave yourself, and do what you’re told, and if you can’t, then give’em hell! I’ll miss you so much.”
