"Feb 19 1937 ------  Feb.19 2016

Happy Birthday Tataye!  Today you would have been 79 years young.

It’s hard to believe that it has been only 2 years  since you left us and even harder not to pick up the phone to call you and wish you a happy birthday.  But today, I celebrate your life and the memories that you have created for me.  To remember your laughter as we chatted about various things from the weather, to your grandchildren, to what was going on in my life.  Listening to you speak in Amharic to me.  (something that I really miss hearing) Wishing that I could hear your voice once more, for only just a minute.  We used to talk for hours on end about just anything and nothing.  I miss watching my  kids talk to you, knowing that they sometimes had a hard time understanding what you were saying.  They would smile at me and shrug their shoulders, but just kept talking to you, telling you that they loved and missed you.

I remember visiting you in Gander Ethiopia, spending Montes days and evenings with you.  Some times we would talk, some times we would just be quiet in our own thoughts.  But every night before I left the Bed, I told you I loved you and that I’d see you the next day.  I remember that last night I saw you (as I had to go bed) that you gave me a kiss and a hug and a special longing look, like you were memorizing my face.  I remember turning around to look at you in your room, wanting to turn back and not go bed.  I left that night with a heavy heart.  That night, that moment,  is something that I will always remember.   No words can ever express that feelings that I felt.  As I looked back, I know you were saying “good-bye” to me, even though you never really said the words.  It is something I will cherish all my life.

So today, Tataye, I want to wish you a Happy Birthday and to remember you as you were – strong, brave, loving…special.

You may be gone from this physical earth, but you live within me every day, every moment, every second.

Happy Birthday, Tata….I love you"

"Tata, I am missing you today but I know you will always be with me in my heart… I am who I am because of your loving hands. I have my sweet and compassionate soul from watching you and your generosity and kindness to others. I see the world full of wonder because of your imagination. I’ve learned to never give up seeing your drive and perseverance… I love you always and forever."

               TATA HAPPY EASTERN I miss you to much specially TODAY

            ( TATA Means that I am called my mother when I needed her)

When I was sad and depressed,
TATA I needed you to be cheer me up.
Instead I drank till I was numb enough not to feel anything.

When everyone was attacking me and putting me down, making me feel so low,
TATA  needed you to be the one to defend me and be on my side
Instead I endured all the cruel words and criticism the world threw at me.

When I lost all my friends and had no one,
TATA  needed you to be that only friend I had left,
Instead I experienced what the word "friendless" really meant.

When I was scared and frightened,
TATA  needed you to be my security blanket.
Instead I had to live in fear.

When I was angry and full of rage,
TATA needed you to calm me down,
Instead I kept it all bottled up inside.

When I felt so lonely and needed someone to care,
TATA  needed you to hold me tight and never let me go.
Instead I grew up alone with no one to turn to.

When I was hurt and in pain,
TATA  needed you to come running with you healing ways.
Instead I remained scarred and bruised.

When I would inflict self-torture, wanting to die,
TATA  needed you to stop me and tell me how important I was.
Instead I hid my scars and became oblivious to everyone.

When I would cry myself to sleep at night,
TATA  needed you to wipe the tears away.
Instead I held my pillow tight while never ending tears streamed down my face.

When my world was crashing down on me,
TATA needed you to be the one I ran to.
Instead I locked myself in my room in complete despair.

When I felt unloved,
TATA needed you to tell me how much you loved me.
Instead I learned the words "I love you" are meaningless"

"Where is your passion tata? Where is your wisdom that helped us to be united?
Rest in peace!!"

The day you died I kissed your face several  times
After you died I held you close to me
I knew it would be the last time I held you for the rest of my life
You were so sick, in so much pain
That is no life
I know you were afraid to die
I hope you have found comfort
Do you remember how I held your hand and lay my head on your shoulder
Even at that moment I couldn't imagine life without you
People talk about broken hearts in songs or movies
Until that moment I had never known a true broken heart
Over and over I thought "How can I live without you?"
I watched you live, I watch you die
to stay with us you fought so hard,
A million pieces went my heart,
Now a photo I look at to see your smile,
I keep your number on my speed dial,
A video I watch to hear your voice,
This I do.... I have no choice.,
But great memories I will always keep with me,
Your love in my heart for eternity,
I never got to say goodbye,
To understand why, I can but try,
Waiting in heaven from this moment on,
'Till God asks you to bring me home....
Every day I look up at the sky
I know you're waiting for me
I miss you TATA"
