Dear Mommy,

I love you with everything I am. When you left this world on that Saturday Morning, I not only loss my mother. I loss my friend, my ally, my supporter, my advisor, my light at the end of the tunnel when my days always seemed dark. I turned to you, I had no one else but you. Your selfless acts of kindness, your intuitive advice, your love for family. What a loving being you are..

I grapple with the Lord in his decision to take you. How could this have happened when I promised to care for you and did...

When I was at the hospital every single day for 5 months to give you all the support and advocating you needed. I held up my end of the bargain. But it seems like I was bargaining only with myself because God took you despite my desperate plea. Perhaps one day, I will understand...for my sanity and my own life I hope that day comes sooner than later. Until we meet again...

I love you with everything single part of my being...you were and always will be, the gold standard.
