|Let the memory of Mary be with us forever|
"Well mom it's that time of year that we generally wish you an Happy Birthday but , now it's just a remembrance of your date of birth. I can still remember the days we showered you with our love gifts and watched the joy on your face as the family gathered around. I would give anything to be still doing it. I miss you so much, every single day. I can't believe that it is almost 10 years that you left us. It would have meant so much to me for you witness the birth of your great - great grandson and my ordainment as a Pastor and the growth of the rest of the family. Mom, when you laid down to rest Luz stepped in to fill the void but soon after, Jehovah laid her to rest also, now I'm morning two moms. Unbelievable and heartbreaking the way things turned out, you left too soon. It's breaks my heart to even think about it, ten years later and the tears still flows. I can still hear your voice call out, sometime it catches me off guard and I look around or answer. Mom, I still pray for you and our other family members that are sleeping and I do believe that we all will be united together again. Ohh, what joy it will be. Jesus promised us in John 3:15 that we would have eternal life after resurrection." I Love you mommy" and if you were still alive " Happy Blessed Birthday""
"Hi mom, this is the time of season that you love the most. If you were still here, I can see you in my mind getting the house all festive ready for Christmas, calling to get help to put up your outside lights. I miss those days, I miss you and family laughter. Your love for us was the glue that kept our family together and no solvent was strong enough or able to separate us, not even today. You did your best to make us strong and able to stand on our own. I thank God for the time we had with you but, being selfish, I say it was too short. I had lots more hugs, kisses and "I Love You"s stored inside me for you. Mom, as old as I am, I deeply miss you and don't understand why thing have to be this way. I know GOD didn't intend it to be this way, it still doesn't ease the emptiness I have in my heart for you, Basil, and Delores. With GOD's promise our family will be together again and we will not ever die or hurt or get sick. But until then, I hope you know that my heart cries out for you with every heart beat. Merry Christmas mom," I Love You"."
"No greater sacrifice can a mother give to her children and family than putting there needs and welfare above hers. My mother was a prime example and mold breaker, no other like her. We had little, but our home was an open house to neighbors, friends, family, and at times, strangers that needed help. Her teachings were to put GOD first, have love for all, and help others less fortunate. I didn't understand then, the order of what to put first, beside myself growing up but, as I got older, mommy, I got it. .....I can't explain the emptiness in my heart or the Love loss now that you are called to sleep. I Love and miss you so much, but GOD saw your suffering and said it was your time to rest. Mom, you will always be with me and soon we all will be together again, I Love you. Your Son."
