Dedication to my mother, strongest woman that I've ever known
Everything that I've ever achieved in my life was just so that I could make my mom proud. That was all I've ever wanted. May she forever rest in peace. Waves Crashing is for you mom.

“We make a living by what we get, we make a life by what we give.”
There's not a day that goes by when my mother doesn't come across my mind. As I wrote Waves Crashing, I kept envisioning what my mom might say or how she would react after reading my novel. I was really hoping to complete this journey with her. I was trying my best to get this novel published while she was alive, but God had other plans for her. I know in my heart she is happy now and free from all pain.
She always put others needs first before her own. She had a pure, caring, loving heart who stayed strong and kept her head high during hard times. The only thing that seem to be on her mind was her children's well-being. She gave everything she had to support, protect, provide, and nurture us. We were truly blessed to have such a loving mother. I couldn't have been more grateful. This one is for you mom. I love you.
