Rest in Peace, Mom!

My amazing mom – my hero

Your smile made my heart feel lighter. Your laughter was infectious. You made me feel loved. You were my staunchest supporter. You were there when I needed you most. You welcomed Alex into our family with open arms. You held me to a higher standard. Thank you for being my mom.

Your later years after Dad and Anna left us were hard for you. You became lost and scared yet, your smile lit up the room when I came to see you. I wanted so badly to take you away from all the fears.

You are my mom. I love you so much. Rest now. You have earned it.

  1. I am so thrilled you had so much quality time with your Mother and the photos show it all !! You made the effort to be with her and her face
    mirrored your happiness. I was honoured to meet your Mom and wish we had had more time together. Thank goodness you have so many special pictures of your Mom and her close family. You will have the pictures to remind you of her very busy and productive life but the real images will
    be inside your heart forever. You are such a kind and ethical man so it proves that your Mother represented to you a great role model and you
    were definitely on board to watch and learn. I KNOW she was very proud of you just by the way she looked at you. Thank you for letting me know.

      1. Yes, I remember how rough it was when my dad passed away a few years ago. Many virtual hugs your way. I finally seem to be feeling better so perhaps some actual ones soon.
        Love
        Sharen
