Mom; It's so hard to believe that this is actually the 9th Mother's Dau that has come and gone and you weren't here to celebrate it with. It's so crazy! There are so many things that feel like they were forever ago and then there are the things that feel like they just happened yesterday. One thing for sure is that this day does not get any easier as the years' pass. The fact remains that you are not here with us and we miss you terribly. I had a moment the other day where I forgot what your voice sounded like for a split second and it scared the shit out of me. I don't ever want to forget any part of you, the good or the bad... But just the idea that I could perhaps forget the sound of your voice for a split second really hit me hard. I do my best to keep your memory alive for others but there isn't a day that goes by that I don't think of you, dad, Mam-Mam or Genesis. I think of the others but not on a daily basis like I do the four of you. I didn't get to the cemetery due to circumstances beyond my control, but I will make it up to you. You're forever in my heart and I will be sure to never experience that split second of forgetfulness again. I didn't like that one bit!!!! Happy Mother's Day in Heaven, Momma!! I love and you miss you so very much!!!

<3 Merry Belated Christmas, Mom! I will just say here and now, "Thank God that's over!" Christmas wasn't the same, Thanksgiving wasn't the same, NOTHING is the same now that you and Dad are both gone. I hope you're proud of yourselves... LOL... If you can see us, I really hope you are laughing and only yelling a little bit. Who thought us knuckleheads would be left to our own devices this young? You Guys; That's Who!!! In all seriousness, I miss the hell out of your face, Mom! I know EVERYTHING would be entirely different had you still been with us through Dad's passing. But you couldn't be here because God needed an Angel. He got one when you left because although I didn't know it, you're my angel along with Genesis and Mam-Mam. I know it; I can feel you all just showing me sign after sign that you're with me always. I love you Mom and if Heaven has a Christmas, I hope you had a merry one. Hopefully, I'm ready for 2018. I thought I was ready for 2017; bahahahaha, was I wrong!!! SO WRONG!!!! I miss you so much, Mom. I miss the old days that just don't seem old. I miss the feeling of being protected and secure. And well, I miss having a Mom. A Mom and a Friend. We barely had got to that point when God called you home; but... I'll take that up with Him when I get there! Hahaha!! For now and always; Rest well, Momma!!! All my love Always, Cher! <3

Hi Mom; I haven't visited you here in quite some time. Last night when I was visiting you and Dad I experienced that moment. I felt for the very first time in my entire life I had the undivided attention of both of my parents at the same time and that overwhelming feeling of acceptance will never leave my heart and assures me that I am at least on the right track you want me on, perhaps a little wavering, but none the less; I'm headed the right way. I've been praising God all day for that reassurance because I certainly needed it... I miss you mom and I hope you and dad rest well "through the years." All My Love!! Sherri

****This Life**** Today marks the 7th year I've been doing this thing called "life" without you. When you left, I knew I was never going to live the "normal" life I had been living. The "life" I was living needed serious changing so being forced into having to find a "new normal" should have been a good thing. Well, as this "life" would have it, the "new normal" didn't work out so well either. At that point, I forced myself to at least just go through the motions of this "life." Well, going through the motions just aren't good enough anymore. I've been delving deeper than ever before in search of finding a "newer new normal" life. Since forward is the only direction I can safely go, I've decided I should at least do it with a purpose. I've yet to fully understand the purpose in which I'm meant to proceed within this "life," but I refuse to believe there is none. There has to be otherwise why would I still be here? I don't want to be selfish, but I know that finding my purpose and true self-worth in this "life" would be so much easier if you were still here to offer your wisdom and guide me along the path of least resistance. I can tell you that I'm doing my best, Mom. I don't like it! It isn't easy and it isn't fun! But who ever said this "life" was supposed to be fun anyway? Just like the rest of this "life's" captives, I have days and nights where I think this "life" is good. And I've even experienced the feeling of happiness. But then there are the days and nights that seem to far outweigh the others where I can't find anything good in this "life." I don't know what your "life" is like but I know one day I will know and it better be a whole hell of a lot more fun, easier and happier than this "life!" Mom, I love and miss you deeply! Rest well..... <3 Sherri <3
