Words can never expressed how much I love you! Words can never express how much I respect you! You’re the perfect representation of what it means to be a mother. You sacrificed damn near everything for your children. You were always by our side no matter what was going on in our lives. A fighter, warrior, father, psychologist, a nurturer, educator... you took on many roles through my lifetime and always seemed to have the right answers even when you thought you didn’t . I watched you kick cancer’s ass. I watched you for 5 weeks as you laid in bed after your stroke/heart attack and watched as you made sure you got out of bed everyday to walk because the ex marine in you wouldn’t let you stay down. Your strength, determination, and love has gotten the family through many great times and bad times. I’m just grateful you stayed by @brianahodge @aldis_hodge and my side every step of the way. You are the queen of queens and anyone who has ever come in contact with you can easily understand what I’m talking about. Thanks for the life you’ve provided for us. You are prodigiously brilliant!!! Happy Mother’s Day!!
