Mom, I keep looking for you everywhere in all things I Do. I want to call you , I want to visit you, I want to laugh over some goofy thing like we Always did. . But all I have are Memories.. Though you have told us many times to be prepared for one day you'd leave us, No Preparing could of ever gotten me ready for This kind of Pain ! You were the Best Mother any child could ask for. You set the prime example of what a Christian is. Part of me is So Happy you ate walking Hand in Hand with Dad again, but the other part of me is just simply Broken... I love you and miss you so much... Rest Easy and Tell Dad hi and I love him too.
