    I've written about her many times.

    Tomorrow is special though. She would be 59 years old. Not a day goes by that I do not think about her. It doesn't seem that long ago that everything happened yet it also seems like an eternity. I don't know why God had to take her. I don't know why he didn't just heal her like...

    flowers for her birthday. Her headstone was under 4 ft of snow, never mind the 6 ft drift at the edge of the road. I put the flowers in the spot that I think she is. I feel like a horrible daughter, because I am not sure.

    At the holidays and birthdays (which she always
