Mom, it has only been one month since you left us. Everyone says it takes time to heal. They tell me to stay busy. I must be doing something wrong because everything I do I still think of you. I miss you momma. I Love You.

Mom you are the most beautiful and strongest person I have ever known. I can\'t believe you are gone. You have been the good in my life for 51 years and in a breeze you were gone. You were in a wheelchair for 45 years and never let that stop you from being independent. You never let the lack of being able to walk keep you from living life. You raised Jody and I practically by yourself while staying with the man that put you in that wheelchair just because you loved us. The sacrifice you made for us is remarkable. Thank you for being the best person and best mom anyone could ever have. You never judged anyone. You were seldom angry. You suffered a terrible life and you smiled everyday. No one person should have ever endured your pain. In the end you were strong and fought all of the way to your 80th birthday. You are AMAZING!!! I have never been good at much of anything when it comes to relationships of any kind. I only succeeded at being a good son to you because you made me a good son. I am no longer praying to God. I am praying to you from now on. Some people say God listens to prayers. I cannot testify to that, but I know you are a good listener and I know you care about us. You were perfect and now YOU ARE PERFECT. If anyone deserves to be beside our Heavenly Father it is you. You deserve your wings momma and I am so thankful that you are no longer in pain anymore. I hope your new legs and wings are keeping you dancing and flying high. I really hope you come visit me in my dreams because I miss you. I have lost the biggest part of my heart and soul and I would trade places with you if I could. I love you momma. Keep the Amaretto and Club Soda cold and I will bring the music and we will dance and laugh together again someday. We love you momma.
