Tributes to Mom

My mom is the kind of woman where everyone around her genuinely wants to be around her.  She is patient, kind, and puts others above her.  She has been such a beacon of light. I know for a fact that she was the envy of all of my friends.  Sadly on October 4, 2015 she took her last breath. She was battling cancer and God called her home.  Cancer sucks but I feel good knowing I did everything I could to give a portion back to the woman who gave me life.  If I could do it over again I wouldn’t change a thing.  My mom taught me to live in the moment.  I cherish every kiss, every phone call, and every hug.  I long for those hugs and kisses now.  Mom, I love you and hope you are proud of me.  Love Always Adrienne!

Mom, I love everything about you.  I love the way you cared for me as a child.  I don’t think anyone had a better childhood than me.  I love the way you still are caring to your grand-kids.  The type of relationship you have with them is unmatched.  I hope you know that you are loved.  I enjoy learning from you now that I am grown.  I love the way you empower me to be strong and to do things my way.  You empower me not to be like you but to develop my own sense of motherhood.  Thankfully because of your example I am able to show the same attributes to my own kids.  Thanks for everything you do and who you are to me and my family.  Love you mom, Carrie!

I love my mom so much!! Naila

I love the way you cook for me! MJ

Thank you for never giving up on me even when I let you down the most.  You could have turned your back on me a thousand times but you didn’t.  When I made some of the most horrible mistakes you loved me through it and never judged me.  I knew that even when the world talked down to me and about me I could count on you to be there.  When I graduate this May that degree is for you.  I know you are proud of me. I really wish you could be there but you are looking down from Heaven.  I did it mom, we did it!  My life is so much greater because you were in it! I love you and I can’t express how much I miss you. Love Angela!

Mom heaven could have waited. I needed you more and I still need you.  I need you to help guide me.  I need you to teach me how to raise my own family.  It’s been 3 years and the pain is as fresh as it was day 1.  Some keep telling me that it will get easier with time but I can’t see that right now.  I miss all of the things we should have done together like pick out my wedding dress, or be there to fix my veil.  I really want you to know that a picture of you wasn’t enough.  Gladly Ronald is there to help me when I want to cry.  He is a great man mom and you would have loved him.  Nothing will replace the love we share.  I honor you that and with that we are naming our first daughter this July after you.  Her name will be Michelle Marie just like you.  Thanks for all you have done for me.  Continue to watch over me and little Michelle as she grows.  I’m scared mom, but I can honestly say you taught me to be ready for everything.  I hope I can be a great mom like you.  Love Trina.
