Although I did not know your mother well, I know how she welcomed Alli and Jaden into your family with warm welcoming arms. It was obvious that family was the most important part of her life and her legacy will live on in the support and caring you give to each other. How fortunate you were to have the parents you had - they gave a good foundation on which to build your lives.
