Mom.... It's been 24 yrs since you left me. Certain times it seems like a lifetime ago and then there are times it seems like yesterday. I think of you every day... There is this huge gaping hole on my heart, a huge void. You were my world, my best friend, my everything. You imparted gifts that have been with me my whole life..... Being stubborn, patience, strength, optimism, my faith in God, and that sense of peace that no matter what, everything is going to be okay, I'm going to be okay. You were my shoulder to cry on, my rock to lean on, you lifted me up even when you were down. I miss you so much and I hate knowing that my children will never know you and what an amazing person you were, they will never know the wonder that was you. I miss you Mom..... You will live forever in my heart.

lost my mom also......and my dad...miss them both

Im so very sorry for your loss. Losing her was one of the most traumatic things I have dealt with in my life. The love between a parent and child is one of the purest forms of love and in my opinion, the only unconditional love a person will always have. I still have my dad, thank goodness.

She is there in You.............. and Ur mom will be seeing you and she will really proud to have a daughter like you..... God Bless..... :):)

When I hear of others who have lost their mom, it makes me feel so lucky to still have mine with me. I can't imagine your profound loss and pain. Your mom sounds like she was a terrific woman... I guess we know now where you get your amazingness from. Hugs GEL!!!

I can relate to so much of what you've written here. This is a beautiful tribute to your mother and you're a living testament to how special she was. She lives on in you GEL.

That is so touching. Many Hugs!!

Thank you! I just wanted to write something in appreciation of who she was and everything she gave me. She was a beautiful person, inside and out!

She lives on in you, Greenie.

You just brought tears to my eyes..... Hugs SK. I'm glad we are friends.

I'm sorry you're in this place. It does make Mother's Day rough.

I'm actually pretty good today. Yesterday was a tough day....today was much better though. Thank you Kat....
