  • Mom, my Heart is Broken for you 💔! You were the sole reason why Doreen lived as long as she did. You gave up your life for the last 20+ years to take care of your daughter, my sister Doreen. I along with my sister’s reached out on several occasions throughout the years to help Doreen. But failed at every attempt. And respectively so we disengaged from her, but Never You! Mom…Doreen is at peace now and I will continue to be there for you. I Need My Mom Back! With All My Love Forever, Your Daughter Diana💗
