Mel you have always been a rock for your mother and vice versa. I know that this has been a challenge for you both to switch roles. I could see in her eyes how proud she was of you and for taking care of her.
I will never forget how she would go to all of our games and support us like we were her daughters also. She made us feel a part of the family. I will be there for you in any way that you need. Just let me know. Prayers to you and your whole family.
