I cannot believe that Its been 17 years. 17 birthdays have passed and our lives have changed dramatically without you. Its not a good thing, or a bad thing, life just isn't complete. You went home to glory when I was 5 years old. I have no idea what its like to have a mom. I wish I did. I wish you were here just for one day so I could tell you how my life is been, so I could hug you, and give you a kiss, so you could hold me and tell me that everything is going to be okay. So I could hear your voice.
I know you are in a better place. I am so happy that you are not suffering anymore, that you have all of the joy in your heart. I know that you are in heaven with those grand babies that didn't make it. I just want you to know that I love you so much, and you are missed.
My mom died at 32 years old in Spokane, Wa on September 9, 1993. She left behind 3 daughters and a husband. I was just 5 years old.
Today (8.7.2010) she would be 49 years old.
Its so much harder now that I am older, then when I was younger. I guess its because I am married, she didn't get to meet him, WE are trying to start a family soon, she will never meet them. I just wish she was here to experience these things with me. I wish she was here to enjoy being a grandma. I know that she would have been a great one!
My advice to you all is, Love your parents... you never know when GOD will want them.
