Tribute to Mama from Pamela, Rickey and Freddy
You taught us everything, everything even when we were bad you were the guiding force of our life. You taught me how to laugh, you showed us it’s alright to cry, you showed us the strength of a mother, providing us food, shelter, clothing and if we deserved it that famous Ruby Jean club, which we laughed about when we got older. Thanks for taking good care of us and always holding your head up high and being a mother we will always cherish until we see you again in the great by and by.
Love always, your children
