Dear Kristina and family. Your Mom was a beautiful person inside and out. She was always smiling and happy to see us. We used to see each other shopping. You were a good daughter to your Mom, and she was always so proud of all of you, and adored her grandkids. She was a vital part of the garden club for many years. I have missed her. She was never the same after that awful fall at Ikea. Remember to be happy your Mom was in your life, and try not to be so sad because she left you. We always think our Mom will be there for us. She is watching from above. Please know we are thinking of all of you and sending our deepest heartfelt sympathy.
