Letter to my mom:
I know I have the words, but my tears and the lump in my throat make it so hard to express my heart breaking into pieces. As you aged I found myself becoming more and more grateful for your presence. Hearing your voice, talking with you to laughing with you..your unique laugh.. oh how I’ll miss you. You were my world and despite, you not being perfect; you were and will always be perfect to me. No matter the circumstances my heart you had and will alway have. I thought time nor distance could never keep me from you and now time has stopped for you, so leave all the pain, disappointments, failures behind and allow me to hold all the joy, love, and memories in my heart. I miss you so much momma.
Due to the pandemic my mother’s ashes will be scattered in a private session at a later date.
