My Momma...I'm trying so hard to be the woman you taught me to be but DAMN I miss you terribly. I don't understand how I'm supposed to keep going without you...and Erika. We all three drove each other completely batty, especially in our older years, but you were my best friend. I'm so lonely but I will try to stand strong, to be the woman you made me, to rise above this all, because that is your legacy, that is what you passed on: The stronger the wind the stronger the tree. People say that you're with Pal, Gran, Sally & Erk now, I sure hope so, I will try to find comfort in that because I know you spent your life missing them. But know, your baby daughter will spend my life missing you my dearest Momma.
