On this day you told me to get up and get dressed because we were going fishing. We didn’t catch anything but it was great getting to spend time with my beautiful mother. I miss you so much .

Desiree and Derek your mother supported you two 110%. You two were her pride a joy at O’Connor elementary. She supported us teachers because she always wanted what was best for her babies. I will never forget the time I called her with a problem and she said “I am at the stop sign and I will be right there.” Sure enough she was and she straightened the problem out. She always wanted the best for you and your family. She was an amazing woman that loved her family with all her heart. Every time she was at school she was beaming with pride and smiling from ear to ear because she was so proud of you. I feel blessed to have known her and her children. Family was her pride and joy! 🙏🙏🙏🙏 prayers for you all.
