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

This breaks my heart. I'm so very sorry for your great loss. I'm thankful they knew the Lord, but on this earth it's so heart wrenching to lose a part of yourself the way you have. You'll be in my prayers surely.
