Farewell to my Mommy

On March 9, 2009 at 8:45 pm, my mom passed away peacefully. It had been a long road, although not painful for her, it was a long five years alone without my dad. She was never the same after he passed away. She longed to be with him and I can't blame her. They were married 58 years.

I will miss her so much. She was my best friend and mentor. She taught me so many things. I'm so glad that I had been with her since January. I had been coming home from California every two months and staying at least three weeks at a time. We had great shopping trips, great talks, lots of hugs and kisses. Memories that will get me through the coming days, months and years. I know that she is in heaven with my dad and that I will be there someday as well. That is what keeps me going. She was full of life and lots of fun.

Good-night, Mommy. See you soon. Love, your baby girl
