    What is a Mom ?
    A mom is one of life’s best gifts, someone to treasure all life through, she’s caring and loving, thoughtful and true, someone who is always a special part of your life, someone who holds a prime place in your heart, she’s a mentor, a confident and also a friend, someone on whose love you can depend. A mom always has your best interests at heart, she’s someone so dear and so good, she’s a blessing, she’s a gift, she’s a treasure like no other, she’s someone that is truly wonderful. Wherever you go, and whatever you do, a mom’s love will always see you through, a mom is truly wonderful. A mom is truly invaluable, indispensable and unforgettable. I wouldn’t want anyone but you, and that’s why I’m so grateful, that life picked you for me.

    Mom thank you for everything you have done for me, I will always keep you alive in my heart forever.
    I love you
    your son Frank
