Tribute to Mom
She is gone. You can shed tears that she is gone or you can smile because she has lived. You can close your eyes and pray that she will come back or you can open your eyes and see all that she has left. Your hearts can empty because you can’t see her or your hearts can be filled with the love that she shared. You can turn your back on tomorrow and live in yesterday or you can be happy for tomorrow because of your yesterday. You can remember her and only that she is gone or you can cherish her memory and let it live on. You can cry and close your mind to be empty and turn your back or you can do what mom would have wanted…. SMILE, OPEN YOUR EYES, LOVE AND GO ON.
Oh, how we love you Mom! We promise to be good! Lovingly submitted by your children and grandchildren.
There can never be “goodbyes” for us, it would be too painful. Our connection still lives on, although you are far from here. We will miss you more than words can say. We miss the times that we once had, but one day, once again, we’ll hold you close and laugh with you again. We just wish we knew when, but each moment until that day arrives we’ll look for you among the stars and whisper words of love to you but never will we say goodbye. Aunts and Uncles
