To my lovely Mother. I miss you so much already! I am grateful for the time we have had together. I listen to the messages you left on my phone "Oh hi, it's just me. Give me a call", and I can't believe you are really gone. You and I would always say “Talking together is better than a tonic” and it was true!
Patrick said “The sun shines a little less brighter now” and I agree. You touched all of our hearts and left us a legacy of looking for the good in others, and looking for the good in each day despite the obstacles and heartache that might come our way. Simple things brought you great joy, such as looking through your kitchen window and seeing: a flower, a butterfly, a bird, or children walking to school. Holding a baby on your lap, and taking treats or toys to your grandchildren and great-grandchildren also made you happy. We had many a laugh over the silly things your great-grandchildren said or did!
Thank you for being a wonderful Mom, and for showing us how to find joy and happiness in life.
Thank you for all the good cooking.
Thank you for your sweet nature and thoughtfulness.
Thank you for being selfless and for all the sacrifices you made for us. Thank you for everything! We were very blessed to have you for a Mom!
The sun does indeed shine a little less brighter now.
You will always be in my heart, I love you, Cindy
