 Happy Happy Heavenly birthday mom.  I hope you are celebrating with your family and loved ones in heaven.  I wish you were here to celebrate this special day with you.  One day, we will celebrate it together once again!  
No words can describe the feeling when I realize that you are no more.  It's a feeling like no other.  No one really understands the pain of going through life without such an important part of you.  Most times if feels like it was yesterday and other times if feels like it's been hundreds of years since I last saw your warm and bubbly face.  I haven't the slightest clue where you could be in the afterlife but wish I could see you again.  I wish I had said goodbye and give you one last hug.  Mom, you were such a loving mother, always putting others first.  That was one of your selfless ways everyone loved so much about you.  I wish your life had been easier.  You had to endure a lot for us.  I hope you are in a better place looking down on us.  To the world you were one person, but to me you were the world.  You didn't have much, but we always felt like we had everything.  You may not have left millions in your back account, but you left a legacy worth much more.  You left me love and endurance and I get my strength and determination from you for that, it taught me that life may not always be easy but I learned how to survive in it and never give up.  Not a day goes by that I don't think about you, love and miss you more each day.  I love you with everything I am.  When you left this world on that faithful day, I not only loss my mother, I loss my friend and my light at the end of the tunnel.  When my days seem dark, I would turn to you. Words could never be enough to describe how much I miss you.  Rest in peace mom.  You were such an amazing person to me.  You gave us all the best you could.  Mom, you will always be in my heart, that no one can take away.  I will never forget those days we spent together.  May you find peace and rest.  Love and miss you!

Mom always tried to put her family first!  She loved her grandkids and great-grandkids so much!

I loved when my mom would come and spend time with me in Bullhead City, AZ.  She loved it there and said it felt like home to her.  I would take her to Antique stores and garage sales....we had a blast.  Then, in the evening, we would go to the Casino across the River into Laughlin, NV, where we would have dinner and have lots of fun!

mommom loved to crochet blankets for so many!  I think she made one for everyone she knew or anyone that asked for one.  There were times she would be crocheting blankets and her hands would be hurting her so bad from arthritis, but she said, "she had to get them finished"!
