Mother...it was too hard to write or sign your guest book on the one-year anniversary of your passing - March 17, 2012 - so I will attempt to write today...

Not a day goes by without thinking about you...seeing the flowers you loved to see...the backyard you used to sit in and admire and comment on the beauty of everything you saw...your treasures you held on to since your childhood, and the treasures and love you gave me...how can I not think of you every single day?! I so often feel your presence around me...thank you! It is very comforting...

I love and miss you so much, Mother.

"Always loving you,"
Rita

Dearest Mama,
It has been 8 months today since you passed. Unbelievable how the time flies by. As I lay in bed last night I thought of you, Mickey and Daddy - as I always do. I was thinking of adding something in your "guest book" this morning and glad I am as I saw that an old Woody's customer would like a picture of the original store. I will try to gather one up and send it to him/her.
Mama, you are terribly missed - not only by me, but from all of your family. Not a day goes by without one of us mentioning your name and telling a story along with it. While in TN earlier this month, I tried to locate the home you were raised in; I found the area, but not sure of the house. I did find the remains of the foundation of the home you were born in...the home itself had been gone for a long time. I kept wishing you were with me to locate your childhood home and to tell those wonderful stories about your younger years and the family.
I guess I simply want to tell you how much I love you and miss you...though I tell you that every day...I am sure you hear me...
Always loving you,
Your daughter Rita
