My mother passed away on April 23, 2011; she was only 54 years old. She fought a long battle with a rare disease called Relapsing Polychondritis. She fought long and hard up until her very last breath, and she is the most courageous person I know. She will be greatly missed by her family and her friends. She brought so much joy and friendship to those around her with her giving spirit and infectious smile. She adored teaching young children and we know she will take care of all the little ones that passed too soon up in heaven. She will be greatly missed by her husband, her parents, and her two daughters and son-in-law. Most of all, her two young grandchildren will greatly miss their grandma, the games they played and the memories they created together. She is such an amazing person and she will forever be in our hearts.
I love you mom,
If Tears Could Build A Stairway
If tears could build a stairway
and thoughts a memory lane
I’d walk right up to heaven
and bring you home again
My heart’s still active in sadness
And secret tears still flow
What it meant to lose you
No one can ever know.
But now I know you want us
To mourn for you no more
To remember all the happy times
Life still has much in store.
Since you’ll never be forgotten
I pledge to you today
A hallowed place within my heart
Is where you’ll always stay.
God knows why, with chilling touch,
Death gathers those we love so much,
And what now seems so strange and dim,
Will all be clear, when we meet Him.
I Knew you for a Moment
