Roses

I like these roses, even though the photography isn't the greatest quality.

My mom passed away yesterday. Through all my years, she was the one constant factor and consistant source of strength for me. Most comforting is knowing the strength of her faith in God and Heaven. I miss you, mom.

Marie,
I'm so sorry. I could tell you had a wonderful relationship with your mom from the way you wrote about her. And I think you'll find she'll continue to be a source of strength for you. Not a day goes by when I don't think about my mother. I wish I was closer... I'd bring you a chicken pot pie and some garlic bread.

Sorry for your loss Marie -- the strength she gave you lives on and will hopefully comfort you always. Take care.

I'm so sorry to hear that, Marie. Having read a few of the things you've written here about here, I know you were close. She did good.

AllTheBest,

Rob

Losing one that is special to you is never easy. Unfortunately death is part of life. The good thing is that memories live forever.

Marie,

I'm so sorry for your loss. Actually, it's a loss to all of us since I believe everyone's life to be both vital and interesting. Maybe you can tell us a little more about her sometime.

Marie,

I lost my mother not too long ago. I always wondered just how true it was when people would say that a person wasn't really gone if you remembered them.

I know that's true now. Your mother lives in you, and those whom she touched by her life.

And most comforting of all is that she's just a thought away.

Although, I only met your mom once, when I visited you at your house, it was obvious your mom was a grand lady. I was fortunate to dance with her that day and remember how much she enjoyed dancing with me, as did I, with her.
