Jimmy, I am so sorry for your loss. I am glad I had the opportunity to meet your mom this past summer and chat with her. I will never forget when we got back to your apartment (when you had her there for the weekend) and I noticed the cap was off the bottle of Crown Royal sitting on the counter and the look on her face when you said something to her about it, after which I called her a "little stinker." Rest in peace Little Stinker.

Dear Mom,
I've been trying to write a letter to you for the longest time. About the last twenty five years or so. But I've never been able to somehow. I have always been able to write to others, particularly girl friends. It's always been relatively easy for me. Why then, is it so difficult to write to you? Perhaps, when I write to a girl friend, everything is new, the person, the experiences, the relationship.
But our relationship is not new, it goes back to the beginnings of time, for me.
You were there when I became a part of the universe. You were the one who brought me into the real world. You were there long before I was conscious of my being. You were there when I discovered so many things I now take for granted, like life, my individuality, everyone around me, and of course you were there when I discovered you.
It's a little sad to admit that, like all the marvelous and wonderful things in life, a cold drink on a hot day, a great meal when you're famished, a comforting soft bed when you're tired, a Mother also is often taken for granted. But it's so easy to do just that.
Mother, you have always been here. Through all the years of my existance, through all the trials and events of my life, you have always been here. I'm sorry to say that, like good health, or a clear mind, a Mother is not often appreciated for the marvelous person she is unfortunately, something you take for granted, something you value and stop and think about far less often than you should.
But perhaps also, this is what spoils us, the children, the simple fact that Mom is always, always there. Through good and bad, sickness and health, ups and downs she is always Mom.
You are the beginnings of all the best things in life. You gave us ourselves, you gave us family, you gave us companionship, you gave us worth and self respect and honor and hope - and by far most importantly, you gave us all Love... I always have and always will: Love you Mom.
