Gosh it's been 11 years now since you passed away. I sometimes feel like you're not really dead that you're alive and that I just haven't seen you in a while. It's so hard for me to even think about you, it makes me so sad that sometimes I just think that you're still around. I'll see a woman walking down the street, on the train, or in a store that looks you and I'll turn my head thinking that it's you. I miss you so very much! I wish you were still here.
I wish you could see how handsome your grandson Colton is. He would just love you so much. He sees pictures of you and says, that’s my Grammy. I just wish he could have met you.
As an adult now I understand a lot of why you made the choices you made in life. I've made some of the same and have learned a lot in 44 years. I think I've turned out just like you. I’m crazy, I don’t take shit from anyone, but care so much about my family. I'm so thankful you were my Mother. You were the best and I will always love you and miss you terribly! Can't wait to see you again in heaven some day! Love you Ma, I know that in spirit you are still in my life.

10 years, it’s been 10 years today. I remember when double digit years was a big accomplishment!! Now, I don’t know what to think.

It’s been 10 years since my mum died and my life changed forever

So much has happened in 10 years and so much more will happen in the next 10 years and the 10 years after that as well.

There’s so much of my life my mum will never be here with me to experience.

Her death taught me a few things:
To lean on family and friends,
How strong I am,
Life isn’t fair,
LIFE IS A GIFT.

My mum's death was 10 years ago and just yesterday at the same time.

It was the worst moment of my life but it taught me the most about myself and I treasure every moment I had with her. So this anniversary I will honour the incredible life she had that ended too soon and the way she shaped me to be the man I am today.

Mum, is there a party up in heaven
To celebrate your 70th today?
Did angels frost a cake for you?
Or sing to start your day?

We're celebrating you down here
As they must be above
I truly hope your special day
Is filled with peace and love

This day was always special
As we gathered 'round you here
We'd sing and laugh and celebrate
Your day with so much cheer

I miss those special moments
That we shared throughout the years
It's hard to find that on this day
My eyes now fill with tears

I'm trying hard to smile for you
But, ohhhh... that empty chair...
I turn around and find myself
Still shocked that you're not there

Please know I'm thinking of you
As I go throughout each day
This day is very special though
Because it's your birthday.

Happy Birthday, I love you Mum!

It's been 9 years today that you've been gone from the physical world.

The gray plastic box you were given to me in is no longer.

After looking long and hard for many years, I finally found something to place you in that i felt honored you.....I hope you love it.

Here are my thought for today:

I thought of you today
But that is nothing new
I thought about you yesterday
And days before that too.
I think of you in silence​
I often speak your name
All I have are memories and
Your picture in a frame.
Your memory is a keepsake
For which I'll never part
God has you in his arms
I have you in my heart ❤️

Love you too the Moon and back, missing you everyday mum.

My dearest Mum how I would love to say
A very Happy Birthday to you on this day
I will say it anyway in the hope that you can hear
Whilst I have a piece of birthday cake and shed a little tear

Death changes everything! Time changes nothing...
I still miss the moments of your life, the sound of your voice, the wisdom in your advice and just being in your presence.
So no, really time changes nothing. I miss you as much today as I did the day you died. I just miss you!

You taught me everything, except how to live without you. Happy Birthday, I love you to the moon and back :)

I miss you Mom, more than you will ever know. Without you, a part of me is also gone.I though you would always be here for me and continue to guide me. I never realized how lost I would be without you. I hope you can hear me when I said you were the best Mom in the world. I couldn't have asked for a better loving, caring, giving, fun, thoughtful, intelligent Mom. Love Your Son Matt
