    Tanner, I hope you know how much your mom loved you. With all her heart. Allow her spirit to guide you. She lived for you and was so proud of the young man you have become. Her illness made being a mom difficult but in her heart you and Jesus were number one. No one will ever love you like your mother. Let her love and kindness live on through you. We were all blessed to have known her. She was your number one fan. Never forget that she loved you with all of her heart.
