Mom, I could not have asked for a better Mom.  You will never be forgotten.  Your sweet smile, your wonderful laugh, your sweet spirit, your faith in God, your love for your family. . .  I could go on and on.  You are the absolute best Mom a girl could have.  It was so hard to leave you this past Friday but I know you are in a better place now.  I look forward to being with you one day.  Just don't be upset if I don't want it to be tomorrow.  You are the person who molded me and my sisters into the women we are today.  Rest in peace and enjoy your Mom, Dad, and Uncle Kent as well as all the others.  We miss you much but also know you will always be with us.  Love you always, Mom.  Soar with the angels.
