“I remember for the last few years of her life I had run out of birthday gift ideas,” he wrote. “I had given her everything I could. So, every year on her birthday I started sending her flowers. I mean, enough flowers to make the whole house smell like a rose. She would walk from flower to flower taking in the smell. February 12th is a very special day to me.”

“I had this church built in my backyard. It’s almost a direct replica of the one my mother grew up in. It was in her honor. I know she was with us in spirit. Thank you to all our family and friends for joining us,” he wrote.
