Dear Mom - I miss you so much. It's difficult for me to understand that you are gone. My heart cannot believe it. There is so much I want to tell you but the one thing stands out the most in my mind - your life made a difference in mine!!! The Godly example that you set for me to follow in the 43 years that you were my mom is still leading me today. And the example of faith that you showed in your last months on this earth has touched not only my heart, but many others. I will never be the same, Mom. You have set my mind on heavenly things. You helped to change my perspective on what really matters most in this life, and I am forever grateful. Mom, as you faced death, you taught us all to look for God's blessing through the trials we were facing. You taught us not to be bitter or angry, but to TRUST GOD to take care of us. I am still amazed at how blessed we all felt during such a difficult season. And I am amazed even more by all the blessings that God has sent down on our family even since you have passed away. Mom - YOU were the BLESSING! Thank you, Mom. Love you!!!!
