It’s been 19 years since you made your departure. I can’t believe it has been that long. There is not a day that goes by where I don't think about you. Growing up without a mom was definitely hard. Trying to figure things out on your own, not understanding why you have certain feelings, not having someone to help you with simple things like a prom dress or see you off on your first date, hell puberty ??♀️ , even raising a child. But I got through it then and I’m getting through it now. The strength, love, faith, commitment, preseverance and compassion you have taught me is something I will cherish forever. I can say I have lived longer without a mother than with one. When I see people disrespect their parents it hurts me to my core. I don't have either anymore and will give everything I have for 5 minutes with both. So Everyone please cherish your parents, show them you love them, tell them you love them, visit them, respect them, be grateful you have them. You only get one. Continue resting and watching over us mom I love you and give dad a kiss for me. bat mitzvah dresses ?
