"Today is a day for celebration. We celebrate the privilege of having had Mama touch all of our lives. She left us with so many feelings we never would have discovered about our self until she exquisitely translated them to us with her voice.

She is to be missed deeply, yes…But, what if we never had her? That’s what we celebrate today. Mama gave each and every one of us the gift of hope, laughter, and love.”
