By John Ferreira Jr.
You gave me life! You helped me walk. You fed daily ( sometimes too much ). You educated me. You lifted me up when I was down. You healed all my wounds. You always wanted the best for me. You over protected me. I was your only child. I now understand. You guided me to God. You inspired me. You were always there for me. I looked up to you. You showed me how to cook. Everyone loved being around you. You made me laugh. Your house was always open. There was always food and coffee here. You enjoyed everyone who walked thru our doors. You had a gift for making people comfortable. I learned so much from you. Everyone left our house with a smile. And now you are gone. We all miss you. You are in all our hearts. There is no greater love than one has for their mother. Everyone is a greater person after they met you! That is powerful! You will always be remembered. Ninnette Ferreira 1933-2019 God Bless!!
