Vanessa C. is who I will always remember. She was beautiful, intelligent, loving, and caring. She was there when I made my first sounds, and there when I was at the age when I had those awful cries. She loved everyone. She always put her family first. She never forgot her daughters or her son. My mom was the person I looked up to. The only one who always knew what I was going to do before I did it. The only person that knew what I was going through. My mother was a fighter. My mother is no longer in pain. My mother is happily in heaven.
