Cheryl Woolridge This is one of the hardest goodbyes I have had to do in years. Now I know why my mother used to cry in her private hours. Because the family she had lost and the memories she cherished. I want to thank you for giving me all you did which was self-esteem, self-worth and self-love. How to stand up for myself and walk with my head high. And for that I am the woman I am today. And I thank you and honor you for all you have been in my life.
