Our mother belongs on the Plaza of Heroines because she has sacrificed so much to make us the women that we are today. Mom, words cannot express how grateful we are for your constant support and advice. You’ve always stopped everything to help us and we cannot verbalize how much you mean to us. If we become half of the woman you are, we’ll count ourselves lucky. We love you!
