Somewhere in heaven my mother is smiling down on me.
I Love You Mom <3

Christmas was not the same without you and very lonely,
and I know New Years won't be much better.

Missing you.....

Doris, the endless teenager, is now dancing in heaven and has gained and the Earth has lost, one of the good ones. She would have loved the Frank Sinatra send off.

I have been trying so hard to stay busy, trying to figure out all that needs to get done and not wanting to forget anything since your passing Mom, not wanting to go out, but I have been going to work to keep my mind occupied.
On Wednesday, I needed to go to the post office and bank and kept putting it off, finally I decided to venture out.
I parked my car and started walking up the ramp to the post office. I casually looked down to my right and there I see a beautiful shiny black crow eating an apple core..I slowed down not wanting to scare it and right away it flew on the railing to my right next to me. I was amazed and started talking to it...saying how pretty it was and not to be afraid, I swear if this person had not come around the corner of the building at that moment, this crow would have came to me and landed on my hand. It flew over the ramp and landed on the left railing, stayed there for a minute so I could get a pic and then flew away. I know Mom that this Crow is now my Spirit Animal for you and it is said that the crow guided your soul to the afterlife and you have been born again.
I am so thankful for this sign and I feel comforted knowing you made it to heaven...
Love you so much forever more xoxo...Leslie

Wore a purple tee shirt this afternoon and tonight I'm wearing a pair of Mom's blue & white flowered pj's I bought her for Christmas years ago that her aides stopped putting on her at night not wanting to hurt her legs when getting her ready for bed after sitting in that wheelchair all day.....anyway can't wait to see what my next sign will be when she sees me in her clothes :) Also thought of you today Mom when I had a piece of Hershey's chocolate....I never saw anyone eat more candy in my life than you! <3

It's already been 5 days since my beautiful, unique,Gemini, loving, kind, generous, energetic, free spirited, life loving Irish Mom left this earth and went to heaven to be with my Dad after 33 years without him....I have been speechless, and unable to say much! But I have been so blessed to be getting signs from her, so far I am up to 6....she is comforting me still as always! Some of the best things I learned from her was to believe in Old Wives Tales and Shenanigans, and to always be kind and look at the bright side of life!!

My Precious Grandma

Shared by Alexandra Miranda on December 8, 2019
For those who did not know my grandma she was loved by everyone around her. My grandma was one of my bestfriends as a kid, and as I got older. I cherished spending my time with my grandma. One of my favorite memories I have with gram was spending all the holidays at her house with family. I loved sharing root beer floats and over buttered grill cheeses . My grandma loved me and all of her grandchildren so very much, and in her eyes we could do no wrong. My grandma could light up a room in just a second all she needed was a little music and all eyes were on her. Gram was a living angel. My favorite sayings gram would say is to "rise above them" and to " let the good times roll". So now gram that's what I plan to do let the good times roll with all the memories we shared. So until we meet again my precious grandma forever in my heart you'll be.
