    I lost my mother July 20,

    I lost my mommy last July.

    She was only 51. I still don't know exactly why she died and it eats me alive. Her death certificate says "chronic alcohol abuse," but she died with lacerations on her face and the man that created 25 yeasts of abuse standing over her. Her bags were packed- that's one of those...

    5 years since my life turned upside down. 5 years since I stopped talking. 5 years since I saw the thing I'll see every time I blink for the rest of my life. 5 years since I realized that you don't know what you've got until you lose it. I love you mom. I miss you mom. I'll...

    My mom passed away last year (January 2013).

    She was eighty-eight years old, which was very fitting for her to have lived in years, the same amount as there are keys on a piano; because her life was built around her love for playing the piano. We had no clue that mom was sick. She had no signs or symptoms of there being...

    Times like these hurt so much for me. Every birthday, holiday or any day all I can think about are the things we did together. I thank God for every second I got to see you, no one's perfect and we weren't an exception, we didn't have much, we fought too much but at the end of...

    mother would tell me the most fantastically ridiculous stories, and i loved every one of them. Her favorite was that she was actually a fairy. I would tell her no mom! Youre not a fairy! But she insisted. She would tell me that every moment she was away from me she was actually...

    Last year, before I left my dear country Morocco to come to the United States for the 1st time, at the airport my mom hugged me tightly and looked at me with a teary eye. She said, "Daughter, don't ever change. Stay the same good, innocent girl I have known for my whole life." I...

    She passed away seventeen years ago.

    It was so fast. People are supposed to live longer than 47. I still pick something up for her for Christmas and don't realize my mistake until I go to wrap gifts. I hate that her last words to me were so angry and bitter. I loves her and I know she loved me, but she didn...

    Christmas was her favorite time of year.

    We didn't have much, but she made it so good. Sometimes I would hear her crying and saying to herself that she wanted better things for us. We were happy though. We had her and each other. I remember the white tree in the den. We would turn off the lights and sip sparkling grape...

    At the holidays and birthdays (which she always

    My Mom passed away last year.

    She had leukemia and it eventually took. I miss her everyday, and hard to be without her. It was a long painful progress, she managed to be in remission after having chemo for 1 year and within two months she was gone :'( I was with her when she took her last breath.
