MOM


My mom was an amazing woman. She raised all six of us almost single handidly, as Dad was always working (its not cheap raising 6 brats.) We lost her right after Mothers Day in 1997. She was a mere 58 years old. I remember going to her house after she passed away and seeing the house dress I got her for Mothers' Day, sitting there unused with the tags still hanging off. She never got a chance to wear it. Not a day goes by that I don't think about her, or speak to her. I miss her terribly and want to thank her for the following:



  • For being a power of example for me.


  • For teaching me the real meaning of family.


  • For loving each and every one of us kids, unconditionally


  • For passing on your amazing cooking skills/recipes


  • For teaching me how to be a responsible adult. I didn't always do it but I KNEW HOW BECAUSE OF YOU


  • For trying to get me to quit drinking. I appreciate the effort, but it wasn't going to happen till I was ready.


  • For still being there for me every day, I feel you here with us-I truly do


  • For being a kick ass lady-I'm pretty sure that's where I got my spunkiness, hehe


  • For the humor you saw in everything. That may just be the best gift you ever gave me.

I hope you all had a great Mothers Day! QUEEN.....OUT

The fact that you feel her with you every day is the greatest tribute.

Moms really do stick around long after they are gone..

A great tribute to your mother. I'm sorry that she died so young. She sounds like she was a wonderful mother to you.
