Dear Mom, Today is our first Mother's day without you. I never imagined what this would feel like or how I would deal with your absence on this special day, but I am surprisingly strong and at peace knowing that you are free of life's pain and struggles and you can now look over all of your beloved family while holding the hand of God. I pray that you help heal the hole in our hearts from losing you and that our tears soon turn into laughter as we remember the countless good times we had with you. I will be forever grateful and proud that you are my Mom and knowing that your legacy will live on in all of the generations of your children to follow. Happy Mother's Day Mom! I will forever miss you and will never forget your beautiful smile, graceful elegance and tender heart. Love always, your son.
