    My Dear Mother, I miss you so very much. I know that you are out of pain and in heaven with your family. But I wish you were out of pain and here with us. I know that isnt right. But I really MISS you. I dont have you here to worry about me, when Im late for work. I have always had you here for me. You have been my mother and father, best friend. I know you want me to be strong and Im trying. But I feel like someone has ripped my heart out. I just dont know what Im going to do without you. I will see you one day. and you better be ready for me. Remember what you were sopouse to ask Dad. I LOVE YOU SO VERY MUCH. AND MISS YOU MORE THEN YOU COULD EVER KNOW. You were the best of the best.

    My Dear Mom,

    You and I talked about the day that we would be here on Earth without you. I thought I was strong and brave. Turns out that I’m not that strong. I am lucky to have shared 51 years with you. We’ve cried, laughed, been serious, been silly, and most of all, shared.

    Some of my memories include your love of life, sharing with others, and entertaining. Making everyone comfortable and “killing them with kindness” were your strongest personal traits. You gave everyone your true self. Flowers, plants, and a view of the moon are some of the many things you enjoyed and share with us.

    Not having you in Indiana for the summers will be a great loss for us. Who will care for my wilting flowers and nurse them back to health? Because of you, I have the tools; I just have to make good use of them. Not having you in Florida as a place to visit will also be remnants of memory.

    You were strong and brave. You gave us the opportunity to meet new people. You taught us how to love and introduced us to long-lasting, extended family and friends. You made many friends wherever you went; they often remind me of your graciousness and how you impacted their lives.

    I will be forever grateful. You will be missed, and your memories are ours to keep. Thank you!
