  Tribute to mom: A mothers love is pure and true. No matter where you are she's always thinking of you. Praying that you're safe and warm. For Out of her love you were born. Raised to be kind generous, loving and true. I thank you for these lessons mom and I love and miss you. Please watch over me forevermore until the day when I'm knocking on heavens door. --by Jenny Jones
