Mom I want to tell you I love and miss you but glad you are no longer suffering from your health issues and the loss of dad and Tyger. Although you had to be tough in life to get by and sometimes even mean to keep us kids in-line but looking back I know at least I needed it so Thank you. I know you and dad are once again side by side probably with you yelling at him but with love ;-) I also want to thank you for welcoming Jessica and Mya to the family with open arms and trying your hardest to get Madison and Miley to give you hugs and kisses when they were babies even so much as to give them money (but that's my fault cause I didn't bring them around enough) but believe me Madison still talks about you and dad and Miley always says she misses you both Madison is 7, Miley is 6, and Mya is 14 I know teenage years just a little payback for being such a pain to you and pops. Thank you and dad for never giving up on me and giving me a home with tons of love (I may not of seen it growing up but do looking back). I miss and Love you
