As you go in peace ‘Mo’ so do we have some peace that you no longer have to fight off your disease.

Everyone who meets you loves you.

As I watch you get weaker and weaker each day. It breaks my heart to see you this way.

As you go you will get stronger and prettier.

As we say good bye they say hello but we will miss you.

Lee, Baylee, Buffy and Bo

We love you so:

               Diana Hellerud
