My Mothers funeral and memorial

I'll start off by saying this, my mother was not only a mother to me, she was a mother to all and angel of God. For more than 35 years, she was battling a severe case of Rheumatoid Arthritis and other medical complications. For those who don't know about this illness, RA is a degenerative disease that attacks the joints, leaving them deformed nonfunctional.
Her joints were stiff, swollen and tender. Her
whole body was consistentally fatigued with anemia, cronic dry mouth with sensations of pins and needles throughout her body. Even though she felt this every second, she gave this desease a hard fight. My mother was a strong brave lady. My mother loved us, her three sons... My mom would give the world to us. Instead of thinking about how much she suffered, I rather spend the time to praise all the good and the incredible times we spent together with her. She was my mother and my best friend. She was my emotional support. My reason to live longer and stay strong. On her birthday (10/24/2020), she had the best surprise birthday ever. Surrounded by family and love, she blew out her candles with her wish being unity and for her to heal. I can now say she is healed. No more pain, no more help putting her pants on, no more help brushing her hair, no more help even feeding her. She can now run, walk, jump, cycle, do whatever she wants to do.  
She passed unexpectedly.  She did not have any life insurance, and no one can prepare for a passing. 
This year 2020 has already been so hard to deal with. So thank you for taking the time to read this and we will appreciate any contributions. 
May you rest in peace Mama, we love you. 
Rita Martinez Torres 10/24/1960 - 11/30/2020
