Today is Easter. I remember and will miss the 48 years of Easter baskets filled with love that I received from my momma! The disbelief is still present and so are the tears. I see butterflies daily and know mom is with me. What a truly special woman...I love you and miss you more than I can possibly express!
A month has passed. I miss my beautiful momma more than I can express!! I miss her beautiful smile, her loving hugs and kisses and most of all her sweet "I love you"s!! I know I will never be the same without her but, I am a better person because of her!! I miss the impromptu phone calls when one of us saw or heard something that reminded us of each other. I think my heart will always be broken from losing such a truly amazing mother and friend!! I love you mom! You are in my thoughts, my heart and my soul every second of everyday!
Two weeks today since God took you home, the most painful event I have ever known.
Your service was beautiful momma! So many people sharing so much love. I know how proud you were, watching pop, David and Mike being so strong. Not a day has gone by that I don't shed tears...I miss you so much!! I will never be the same!! How blessed I am to have you watching over me! I promise I will take care of pop, your "sweetheart"! He is so precious and he loves you so deeply! Our family and friends have been amazing. What a testament to what a beautiful person you were! My heart is broken momma but, I know your loving arms are always holding me! You are and have ALWAYS been my angel!! I love you, forever and beyond!
I was devastated when I got Judy's call to come be with my "Other Mother" I came right away and it was awesome to be by her side, swap stories and listen to her quick sense of humor. She, Pop ;[Mr Alesso (I could and never would be able to call you Ernie)] were always there for me. When I think of Mom, I see a smile...oh that sweet and wonderful smile....she will and always will be in my heart. So many stories...the people who were fortunate enough to know her will miss her tremendously! I just hope that someday I will be able to touch as many lives as her did! I'm VERY sorry for your loss; Mr Alesso (Pop), Judy, David and Mike....
Where do I begin to explain the tremendous loss to my family and the world! If I live to be half the beautiful, compassionate, generous and kind woman that my precious mother was...myself and the people I know and meet will be truly blessed! Mom had an infectious smile like no other. The kind of smile that would shed light on even the darkest of days! A hug from mom was so much more than just a hug. It was a refuge, a safe haven a place you never wanted to leave! I thank the good lord daily for blessing me with the truest example of what a mother should be. Actually, mom exceeded the largest of expectations. Thank you God for choosing mom for me and me for mom. And, thank you mom for insisting that you have a baby girl to go along with your two sons. I love you forever and beyond!!
