My mom will always be loved and remembered for taking care of us, loving us, and never leaving us, but the day she passed away I lost a part of myself; the side where I’m happy for having our mom with us, taking care of us when we were sick, making us happy was her favorite thing to do. She never liked to see us sad and if she did she would try to make us laugh.  From this day I will always remember her and she will always be in my heart.  Now she’s in a better place where she won’t suffer, cry, or stress out. She will be forever happy and watch over us from the sky, Heaven, God’s Palace, and I will do what she wanted us to do and that was to keep the family together not to be separated, take care of each other and stay happy. But the thing I like is that I know I will see her again and I’m gonna make that moment the most important day of my whole life. I will grow, life will be hard, but that’s how it is.  I’m still going to remember her, love her, no matter what happens to me or anybody else.

My mom will always be remembered by her personality. She always made everybody feel better no matter the situation. She was a very strong, beautiful woman.  She went through so much pain but never gave up. She would suck it in so others wouldn’t get their hopes down. Everybody will remember her because she would care for everyone and she would take really good care of everyone. My mom is the bravest soldier I’ve ever met.

My stepmom was a very beautiful outgoing person with the best personality. She was a very loving person. She made us laugh on a daily basis. She’s the one that kept the family together and happy. I will always remember her as a mother, a friend, and a person with a very big heart. Her way of being with people (I mean the way she made people feel as a person) was a very great gift she had. She loved everyone. She was the best mother, grandmother, and stepmom anyone could ask for. I love her as a person. She will always have a spot in my heart.
