  3. Mom,
    I will always cherish the all the years that I was able to share in your life. Just like your beautiful quilts that are bound together with their border, your family was bound together by you, our border. Even though you are no longer with us we all have our memories of our times with you. And when all your family and friends get together and reminisce about you, we will be making our own patchwork quilt of memories to share and comfort us all. You will always be in our hearts.
    Love always,
