I find it very difficult to believe, but Facebook “reminded” me on Saturday that my mom lost her battle to cancer on February 20th, 2011. My mom was an amazing woman and the world is a lesser place without her in it.
To honor her memory, I’m going to re-post what appeared on my blog five years ago.
I love you, mom. I still can’t believe you’re gone. I know I’m far from perfect but I hope I make you proud.
While going through literally hundreds of photos last night, I stumbled upon something I wrote about my mom when I was just a kid. I don’t know how old I was when I wrote it, but it stayed true until the end…
Goodbye mom. You’re in a much more peaceful place now…no more suffering, no more pain.
I love you.
You will forever be my very best friend.
