My dear, sweet, beautiful mother, I can't believe I haven't heard your voice in seven years but I see you in my dreams and feel your presence constantly. Your spirit is always with me.You were the perfect mother, always supportive and loving and an even better grandmother.
Thank you for taking such good care of daddy. We couldn't have found a nurse or even a doctor to do what you did. You kept him with us much longer than he was supposed to be.
You'd be so proud of the girls. They are amazing human beings. We talk about you all the time. We laugh uproariously, telling stories as we go. If I have one regret, it's knowing you won't ever meet baby Lauren who we named after you. I tell her about you and show her your beautiful pictures so she will know all about you.
Sarah is a beauty. She was voted into the Freshman Homecoming Court. She is about to turn 16 and will be driving this month. I remember how you always laughed when she was fresh to me. You'd really be laughing now.
Leslie has not been in the best of health but the worst is behind her. I promised you I'd always take care of her and I will, as long as she let's me. We are very close and the bond that we have formed will never be broken again. We want you to know that. Oh, mommy, I miss you.
