Now, she’s written about how much she misses her mother and wondered just how close they would be if she were alive.

She wrote, "I called you in prayer today mama, if you were here you'll be a year older but you not so I pray for your soul. My beautiful Rose Happy Birthday Mama, as I grow older I miss you more than words can tell, I wonder how close we would be if you were here, I carry you in my heart always I celebrate you every day. You served God, you were kind and your light shines still.

Keep resting, keep praying for us, keep watching over us #August 31."
