    Saint Charles MissouriTo the best mom a daughter could have. Not only were you the woman who brought me into this life, you were my best friend. There will never be anyone who could take your place. You took a piece of my heart when you left this world, but you also left me a piece of you to fill that empty place. You will be missed my love. I love you! Forever in my heart, Donene
