I know you said I have to forgive but to not forget. I sit back and remember all the things you went through and how you were treated and I get angry all over again. I'm sorry I wasn't able to protect you Mom. June and Denielle we're good liars and they had Peggy and Sandy to back up their lies. I saw it in your face the day you gave up and it killed me. It's not over Mom. No child should ever for any reason put their hands or threaten you or force you to sign things so they can take the things you worked so hard for and that wasn't intended for them. I wish I could hug you just one more time and hear your voice and hear your laugh. I ask God to give you a kiss and a hug. I will be ok. Even on my worst day I know I will be ok thanks to you. I love you Mom. Oh, Stacy had a baby girl and she named her after you.

It's been 6 years Mom. I miss you so much. I still cry for you. I still need my mom. I try to remember everything you taught me hoping I will eventually be as strong as you. You are an amazing mother and I don't know how you got up every morning no matter how bad you felt and went to work. I'm trying so hard. I wish you were here but I know you're somewhere better. I feel you sometimes and it makes me feel good. I send you a kiss and a hug every time I tell God the things I'm grateful for. Remember this mom. I have always loved you no matter what. You are a great mother. And you have at least one daughter that believed in you and tried to protect you. I love you and miss you and dad so much.

It hasn't got much easier Mom. I talk to you and ask for your guidance and strength. I don't know how you did it, raising us and putting up with us. You deserved better kids. You didn't deserve to be treated the way June and Denielle treated you. I will never forget Mom. At least I know you're not being abused or threatened by them. You wanted to know if you were a good Mom. You were the best. You taught my so much. I'm glad you were hard on me because the last thing you needed was another one of your kids treating you bad. Continue to rest in peace Mom. I love and miss you so much.

I wish you didn't have to leave but I know you were tired and lonely and sad. I miss you more than words can say. I love you with all my heart. I know you're resting now and there's no more pain. My pain of losing you will hopefully get easier as time goes by but I will never stop missing and loving you. May you rest in peace with your family up in Heaven. Your youngest child will be joining you soon. I love you and miss you Mom. From your Tisica to my Dolores.

1st grade

Shared by Teresa Espinoza on June 2, 2016

I remember 1st grade cuz we had a substitute teacher. I decided I was going to walk home for lunch. I wanted to be with my mom. I made it halfway home when a cop stopped me from crossing the intersection. He took me home and talked to mom. I knew I was in trouble. I didn't get spanked but I got punished. I didn't care cuz I got to be with my mom.
