  • So deeply sorry for the loss of your mother Damaris

  • Mom Missing you is a given. Saying goodbye is impossible. I will fill the void your passing leaves in my life with all the memories of my time with you. Our childhood couldn't have been more perfect. You taught us many lessons that hold us in good stead today. Manners, respect, and good morals to name a few. Thank you for the encouragement to be who I wanted to be even when I was a tomboy and you wanted a princess. Memories of all the holidays you made look easy. Christmas cookies won't be the same without you. Thank you for all the sacrifices you made for our family always putting everyone else first. I feel honored and privileged to have been your daughter, you loved me unconditionally and were the best mother anyone could ask for. I will miss you more than is imaginable. Thank you I love you Lois
