Gloria Johnson November 28, 2017

On Nov. 28, 2016 one year ago you left me, you weren’t the only one who died. God is the only one who will ever know quite how I feel inside. Your life was a blessing, your memories a treasure, you’re loved beyond words and missed beyond measures. I wish for nothing more than just one more day with you. You were my best friend, riding buddy and most of all my mother who always listen and had time for me. I miss the late night and early morning talks. I will always remember your last words to me was I LOVE YOU with a smile on your face. Thank you Mother Thank you mother- for all that you have done, You took great care, of your daughter and son. You loved us all from the very start, with your warm, kind, and loving heart. Thank you mother, for being strong, While trying to teach us right from wrong. If anytime, we had a problem, you were there to help us solve them.
