REMEMBERING, HONORING A WIFE, MOTHER AND A GRANDMOTHER
Mom you were so loved and appreciated. As children, we didn’t or couldn’t comprehend or even fully realize the meaning of your love, how tender and wise, your patience and guidance or even your helpful and caring ways. The special and thoughtful things you did for each of us. Years have gone by since we were all children and the depths of your concern over us and the love in your protectiveness showed no limitations. But we are all grown now, and I believe we truly understand as we look back and see through our older eyes and wiser hearts, your true love and dedication to us.
You meant the world and all to us and it is very hard to say goodbye, you are leaving an emptiness deep inside our hearts and we wonder if our tears will ever dry. We understand now why you always told us to be strong, you knew that one day we would need the strength to bear your loss.
Each one of us will hold a special memory within our heart that we shared with just you. Those times, when we are really missing you, we will reflect on that memory and cherish our time with someone who showered us with love unconditionally. Your time with us is over and you can finally rest, we will miss you dearly and hope you know we carry your love in our hearts.
