  1. Mom I love you so much. So much more than I can say. More than you’ll ever know. My heart is empty without you but I know that you’re free and with the Lord. Beauty was timeless and your strength was endless. I was blessed to have you as a mother and Hope I have been a fraction of the mother you were to me. I love you. I will take your memory with me wherever I go for you will be with me forever. ❤️

    Your loving daughter Charisse.

    How I loved and love thee
    There was a delicate scent that emanated when I embraced and held you and I always succumbed to your sumptuous, delicate, sweet fragrance that was you, it gave me comfort and I was home.
    Your beauty and love was limitless, your virtue and determination boundless.
    My sorrow is deep and incalculable, my heart aches, the mind is numb, and my tears will fill the ocean of regret that I could not hold you in my arms forever.
    I will remember and love you every moment of my life.
    Love is eternal.
    Your daughter Marguerita
