This is my mom. This was five years ago when the picture was taken.
One year ago she passed away. I can't believe it has been a year already. Her passing was sad but I believe she is more comfortable wherever she may be now. Her last year she was uncomfortable, unable to move around and do what she would like to. She was always a very busy person so having to sit in bed I think drove her crazy.
She simply adored the boys and loved listening to stories about them. They would make her laugh. She would make them laugh. I am so grateful that they were able to meet her and spend time with her, as they never got to meet my dad.
The hardest thing this past year was not being able to call her every day. I would usually call her while making lunch or dinner just to check in. Even if it was a quick 5 min. call, it was always nice to hear her voice and share a piece of our day.
She was an amazing woman- one whom I miss dearly. I think of her often and keep her in my heart always.
Love you Mom!
