I have been to New York countless times but never without my momma. It was her favorite place and we always had the time of our lives there together. This trip was hard. I cried and was lonely but also spent time being thankful for these times with her. I opened my suit case after arriving and who knows how this wallet got here but it did. Mom, you figured out how to come with me. Thank you 💗

When she spoke with the outlet, Mackenzie said that “so many people care,” and that helps her as well. So, she never objected to the last days of her mom being aired by MTV. Naturally, she really misses her mom and still looks for “closure.” But, she sounds grateful she could be there for her when she passed away. Her family knew Angie was dying. After a lifetime of giving love, they made sure she knew love right until the end.
