    This memory tribute is to my mother. I am writting it as a letter to her. Dear Mama…My heart breaks as I write you this letter. It was hard to say good-bye. You were loved by so many. I have never known you to have a enemy. You always had something good to say about everyone. You have been the best mama in the whole world. It is not fair that you have had to go thru so much sickness. You handled it so bravely, something that I wouldn’t be able to do. I will miss you so much. I wrote you a letter and put it in the coffin with you. I wrote in it to give me a sign that you were ok. After the burial, we went to the church for a dinner that they so kindly prepared for us. Kimberly went outside to sit after she ate. A white dove swooped down over her head and flew back and forth over her several times. Kimberly came in and told me. Sandra and I went outside to see it but after a few minutes of no luck we went back inside. A little while later as I was putting something in my car, I noticed Jeffrey’s cd and went to take it to him. Him and some more were gathered at the back of the church. Just as I was reaching them, not one but two white doves swooped over our heads, side by side. They did perfect loops and dives over us and then flew away, staying side by side the whole time. I know that was your sign that you were ok. It was you and daddy or you and Randy. Please continue to give us signs. I love you with all my heart and will miss you. But now you can breathe without labor. No more suffering. It is only temporary that we are apart. Until we are together again…Love your daughter…Sherry
