November 9, 1941 - December 20, 1996
From the minute I was born I know that I loved my mother more than life itself. She
gave me all the gifts that a person could hope for. Love, laughter, honesty, faith,
compassion, caring, sensitivity and warmth. There was no place like my mothers
arms. I knew that she would always take care of me and never hurt me. She was
so giving. She would never forget a person after she met them. She would
always remember their birthdays, or when a baby was born, even if she barely knew
you. She would make some kind of friendly gesture. She didn't have a mean bone
in her body. Mom would always make excuses for the people that would hurt others,
she would always forgive them. She was my protector, my best friend. We had so
much fun together.
One cold December night I got the phone call from my brother at 1AM
that Mom had a heart attack and the outlook was not good. She was comatose in a
hospital and died five days later on December 20, 1996. She was only 55 and she had
survived breast cancer to be taken by a heart attack. She left behind 5 children,
her husband and 5 grandchildren.
How are we to survive the rest of time without her? I am only 25
years old. There is so much that I wanted my Mother to be by my side for. Who
is going to help me and be by my side when I have a baby? Who will love all of her
grandchildren like she would? I will never know the answers.
I know I still have the rest of my family and I do thank God for that. But I will
always have this massive, empty whole in my heart. I do not go one day without
thinking of my beautiful Mom. I love you always and forever Mom and you will always
be in my heart to share the good times and the bad. I can't wait to see you again
To all the Angels of the Memorial Pages, may the Lord Bless you and
keep you close to the ones you so loved.
