It is almost impossible to capture a person on a tribute page. Our mother will not be defined as an addict with a mental illness, but rather as a human being who was loving, generous, funny, beautiful, strong and resilient. Mom embodied the spirit of helping those around her, regardless of how others saw her or her peers. We miss her every day but know she is at peace.
"Love as powerful as your mother's for you
leaves it's own mark. To have been loved
so deeply, even though the person who loved
us is gone, will give us some protection forever."
- J.K. Rowling
