A stronger person would be hard to find, and in your heart, you were always kind. You fought for us all in one way or another, not just as wife not just as mother. For all of us you gave your best, now the time has come for you to rest. So, go in peace, you’ve earned your sleep, your love in our hearts, we’ll eternally keep”.
