Vanessa, so sorry to hear of your great loss. Like your mom, my loving, mother told me every day How beautiful I was. It's the most endearing confidence builder you can ever receive. It won't be long and our mom's and all others we have lost will be raised in the coming resurrection.. Love, Ann Korkolis

She told me that she loved me every day, multiple times a day. She called me beautiful as often as she spoke to me. She helped me whenever I needed her. I miss her.
