Today would have been my mom’s 59th birthday. And while she may be gone, she is still dearly missed and definitely not forgotten.

Her voice and commanding presence at her home in Mongo Hill, St Johns will always represent home sweet home. Thus, I’d walk through fire to get to her and can’t wait to get back sooner rather than later.
